Moses Wenyou

 ( 2, 2015)-The World Bank’s Senior Agriculture Specialist has challenged Mano River Union Countries to enhance rice production in West Africa.

Mr. Abimbola Adubi said enhanced rice production will ensure a better livelihood for farmers of MRU member states.

He said the move is important especially at this time when the cost of rice is increasing on a daily basis.

Mr. Adubi spoke Monday at a two-day conference of the West Africa Agriculture Production Program initiated by ECOWAS.

The initiative, supported by the World Bank, seeks to ensure regional cooperation in agriculture.
