rice per hour in Kebbi.

Governor Akinwumi Ambode, made the disclosure in Birnin
Kebbi on Saturday while addressing newsmen at the end
of his one day official visit to the state.

The governor, who was accompanied on the visit by Mexican investors, said the mill would be completed within six
months.

He said the MoU was to strengthen the drive to end the
importation of rice and ensure food security.

teeming population and improve

He said the MoU included
collaboration on developing livestock, fish, sorghum and
groundnut.
