Obasanjo Exports Cassava Bread To Tanzania by IB5(f): 5:22pm On May 15, 2013

Cassava bread is a Nigerian innovation in bakery.
Nigeria’s former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, has begun a mission to introduce African countries to Nigeria’s innovation in bakery, Cassava Bread.
Mr. Obasanjo, a goodwill ambassador for the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture, IITA, recently took the bread to Tanzania where he publicly munched the bread with the President of the United Republic of Tanzania, Mrisho Jakaya Kikwete.
Former President Benjamin Mkapa of the United Republic of Tanzania also ate the bread for the first time. The leaders supported the innovation, noting that it would bring several benefits to the continent.
The 40 per cent cassava bread was first developed by IITA in Nigeria, as part of efforts to boost the utilization of cassava and create market for farmers.
President Kikwete after inaugurating the IITA Science Building in Dar es Salaam on Monday commended IITA for the bread technology, saying that the bread had an “excellent” taste.
“There is no difference between this bread and the normal bread we are used to,” he added.
Mr. Obasanjo encouraged the Tanzania President to promote the use of cassava in confectionaries in his country to
transform agriculture. He noted that the use of cassava flour in bread would stimulate the demand for the root crop, create jobs and, more importantly, make farmers proud.
Mr. Obasanjo, in 2002 initiated a policy on 10 percent inclusion in bread under “the Presidential Initiative on Cassava,” program. The program which was implemented by IITA and national partners, drove the demand for cassava, increased productivity by about 10 million tons in 6 years, and made Nigeria the top world producer of cassava.

On getting to work this morning, my Oga at the top came to me very happy. He had a brown envelope in his hands. I was getting excited, maybe my salary is to be increased, or I was to be sent to a conference. My eyes almost bulging as he opened the envelope....and there was the picture of OBJ! My boss and OBJ shaking hands in Tanzania. He was so happy and was say: 'Thats me shaking hands with CHIEF Obasanjo, your ex-president'. I had to laugh along and be happy.
Sorry for diverting the post.
