Edwin assured that the plant would continue to meet local demand for the product at an affordable price in order to make Nigeria self-reliant in food production.

NAN reports that at the jetty, the team witnessed a ship being loaded with Urea for export to Argentina.

Speaking at the event, the minister corroborated Edwin, saying that Nigeria is currently self-sufficient in the production of Urea and it is the leading producer of the fertiliser in Africa

“Before this administration came into office in 2015, Nigeria had a fertiliser shortfall of about 3.5 million tonnes per annum (over 6 million tonnes per annum are required in the country).

“Thanks to the Presidential Fertiliser Initiative launched by President Buhari, indigenous companies like Indorama and Notore – with a combined capacity of over 2.5 million tonnes per annum,” he said
