The Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security, says it will facilitate the participation of members of Smallholder Women Farmers Organisation of Nigeria (SWOFON) in Niger, in the Oxfam annual award.

Dr Ladan Suleiman, the State Coordinator of the ministry, disclosed this in an interview with the NAN on Sunday in Minna.

“We will help the smallholder women farmers in Niger to register for the Oxfam annual award.

“It is known as the Ogbonge Award, established in 2012 to recognise the small-scale women farmers for what they have done to develop agriculture and to encourage them,” he said.

Suleiman said the measure would also help in ensuring food security in the country.

He explained that the women farmers selected would have the opportunity of traveling abroad to attend international conferences to voice out issues concerning women.

The coordinator said that all the smallholder women farmers in the 25 Local Government Areas of the state would be captured in the exercise.

He said that Oxfam is a British Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), collaborating with the ministry to encourage the small-scale women farmers.

Responding, Mrs Grace Disa, the State Coordinator, SWOFON, promised that the women farmers would utilise the opportunity to improve their farming activities. (www.naija247news.com).
