The Nigeria Incentive Based Risk Sharing System for Agricultural Lending (NIRSAL) says it is ready to partner with the Nigerian Guild of Editors (NGE) to strengthen their livelihoods even after retirement.

Mr. Aliyu Abdulhameed, Managing Director and Managing Director of NIRSAL, revealed it during his opening speech at the 17th All Nigeria Editors’ Conference (ANEC) 2021, hosted by the Editors Guild ( NGE) Friday in Abuja.

Abdulhameed said there were many opportunities and services at NIRSAL that the NGE could benefit from, adding that they were ready to partner with the guild.

“What NARSAL would do with the NGE is talk to them through a technical team set up by the guild and create a model to show upstream and downstream how the guild can benefit from the different opportunities. by NIRSAL.

“Then we optimize these models so that when we put one naira, we can get three naira back, because it doesn’t make economic sense to put one naira and get one naira.

“The agricultural sector is subject to science and modeling. So when we optimize your project with you, we then optimize the hardware solutions. Then we approach the bank.

“My call to action for the guild is how can we work with you to create a technical pilot model to benefit the guild,” said Abdulhameed.

He urged guild members to understand that agriculture is a business enterprise, adding that the sector contributes around 24 percent of Nigeria’s gross domestic product.

He pointed out that in Brazil and Egypt, especially in the Nile Valley, agriculture has been passed down from generation to generation, saying it has the potential to improve the livelihoods of citizens.

According to him, it is unfortunate that many farmers think that agriculture only begins and ends with production.

He said that production is an aspect of agriculture, that there is a need for other chains like packaging to improve value.
