A Saudi investment company, Zain Al-abdin Group, has concluded plans to set up an agric city in Kwara State.
The proposed agric city, which is to be located along the River Niger in Kwara North will comprise a cluster of farms specialising in cultivation, processing and export of rice, maize and vegetables.
The chairman of the investment group, Zain Al-Abdin Nafawi, disclosed this when he and other members of the group visited the Kwara State Governor, Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed, at the Government House, Ilorin on Tuesday.
According to the chairman, the agric city will also contain facilities such as schools, hospitals, shops and other associated services. He noted that the project is a multimillion dollar investment, which will commence as soon as all paper work is completed.
