NBA Presidential aspirant Paul Usoro SAN, earlier today delivered a powerful lecture at the NBA Calabar branch week. The passionate Lawyer spoke on the tremendous investment opportunities of the Nigerian Agricultural sector. He stated that for Nigeria to metamorphose into an agro-industrialized economy, the Nigerian Governments should at all levels rigorously push for and apply polices channelled towards improving the focus on agro industries.
He further explained that the drive for achieving an agro-industrialised economy must be complemented with an improvement of rural and other basic infrastructure which are critical to agricultural transformation and establishment of a seamless value chain like rural electrification, road/rail for transportation of agricultural produce and processed/finished goods, for export and domestic use alike.
In his closing remarks he stated that the NBA Calabar Branch did well by focusing on the untapped area of Agriculture in the Nigerian economy.
The gathering was well attended by the Chief Judge of Cross River State; Justice Michael Edem, the NBA Chairman (Calabar branch) Dr. Emmanuel Idaka, Garun-Gabas SAN, the AG of Jigawa State, Emmanuel Essiet, Prof Dakas C. J. Dakas, SAN and other members of the Calabar branch.
