    The Honourable Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Dr. Mohammad Mahmood Abubakar, today Thursday 21st April 2022, formally inaugurated the National Steering Committees of three (3) Donor assisted projects, namely; Agro-Processing Productivity Enhancement and Livelihood Support Project (APPEALS), Rural Access and Agricultural Marketing Project (RAAMP) and Agricultural Transformation Agenda Support Programme Phase-One (ATASP-1) at the Ministry’s Headquarters, Abuja.

    In his remarks, Dr. Abubakar underscored the importance of the projects to the government’s efforts in achieving food security, providing jobs, empowering youth, rural development and general economic diversification.

    He said, “this inauguration today marked a significant milestone in the implementation of Development Partner Support Projects in the agricultural sector. Over the years, Projects have been without steering Committees making it difficult to effectively track their performance especially approval and monitoring of Annual Workplan and Budget (AWPB) which is the core responsibility of the Steering Committee as contained in the Project Appraisal Document of all.
