Farmers are now kings – President, Rice Farmers

The President of Rice Farmers Association, Mallam Aminu Goronyo, has said that government and banks now accord farmers respect unlike in the past.

Mallam Goronyo stated this when he led a delegation to meet with the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Wednesday in Abuja.

He said that the previous government treated farmers like lepers, and banks refused lending them money. However, Mallam Goronyo revealed that the coming of the present government has changed the course of event, adding that banks are now lending money to farmers.

“We have not been having this kind of respect before, we have become kings today,” Goronyo stated.

In his own remark, Vice-President Osinbajo praised rice and wheat farmers, saying “farmers are among the most important people in Nigeria today.”
