WHO WE ARE
They Will Write Songs About Us, One Day...
NFG-CS understands that for any meaningful development to happen to the Nigerian Economy, Nigerians must develop their Agricultural sector. For the longest time, despite the Billions of Naira which has supposedly been pumped into the Agric Sector, Nigeria still spends Billions annually in the importation of food to support the local production of food which isn't sufficient, while about 50 Million Hectares remain unfarmed.
The vision of NFG-CS is to help Nigeria achieve food sufficiency by engaging her citizenry in the now patriotic task of developing her Agricultural Industry, thereby making it the Mainstay of the Nigerian Economy like it once was. We do this by providing people with the platform to engage in agricultural activities while bearing the burden of overseeing these activities for them, 100%.
We have established farm settlement Villages across Nasarawa and Adamawa States with structures on ground which can support Commercial Agriculture like Irrigation system, employment of Agricultural Extension Officers and purchase of sophiscated Farm Machineries. Each Farm settlement village is at least two (2) thousand Hectares large and individuals can lease these lands from the Cooperative, provide the finances to farm these lands with their Crop(s) of choice and the Cooperative will manage the entire operations for them, from land preparation to eventual off-taking.
Any interested Nigerian can register with The Cooperative through our website (This is the only avenue for registration which is recognized by The Cooperative), pay the registration fee to complete the registration process, which makes the person a full-fledged member of The Cooperative. After registration, The Member who wishes to be a Farmer can choose from the specified list of crops what s/he wishes to farm, and the number of Hectare s/he is interested in farming for each Hectare.
NFG-CS is the right platform for all Nigeria Farmers; you have all the opportunities now to make the best use of what the government has to offer. We are working hard, using all available contacts within the establishment for the advantage of us all. We are Farmers. Agriculture and Farming is the Pride of Nations not an object of Ridicule. We Must not only propagate the Message of Planting Trees and Leading an Agricultural Rebirth at all Levels of Government; but Fight to make the Process Easier for Real Farmers. We are Seeking Agricultural and Farming Support Opportunities in Agriculture for More Nigerians; Pull Resources Together for Bigger and Better farming Opportunities and Investment as well as Providing information where Necessary to support whatever we have chosen to do in our own little way.
