Even the WB knows we have issues with food security in Nigeria, hence the credit facility.
Food Security: W’Bank Earmarks $45m for Nigeria, 2 Others
From Dele Ogbodo in Abuja, 05.27.2010
The Sector Leader, Sustainable Development of the World Bank in Nigeria, Mrs. Shobha Shetty yesterday said the bank has set aside the sum of $45 million credit for Agricultural Productivity Programme in three West African countries as part of its Global Agricultural and Food Security Programme for Africa.
The benefiting countries, she said, include Nigeria, Cote D’ Voire and Burkina Faso. She said "We are working with Agricultural Research Council of Nigeria basically to improve agricultural productivity in the three West African countries.”
She expressed optimism that the project will soon be approved by the Board of World Bank and then start implementation in few months time.
Shetty, spoke when she led a delegation of the World Bank team on a courtesy visit to the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Mr. Sheik Abdullah and the Minister of State for Agriculture and Rural Development, Mr. Najeem Awodele in their office.
Underscoring the reason for the USD45 million credit and her visit to the minister, she said, the World Bank is ready to work with the ministry to help develop a workable proposals under the scheme.
She explained that Nigeria is expected to develop a National Agricultural Investment Plan as part of the process that the country endorsed last year.
Identifying the key challenge in Agricultural financing Nigeria, she said, "I think that the key challenge is for the Ministry of Agriculture to really have a well resourced and well costed investment that really identify the funding gap and how donors can align themselves to it."
However, she said the key issue was to improve agricultural productivity through knowledge support system, getting the right technology to the rural farmers and connecting linkages between researches and extension services in these countries. Beside improving life and contributing to food security, she said the World Bank intends to use the model for similar projects elsewhere in Africa.
She expressed happiness that the Fadama programme is on course in 12 states of the Federation while the Fadama 3 is also currently on in 35 states of the country and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

The story below is also to buttress the FACT that a sizable number of Yorubas live and do business (investment) in Anambra. They must be paying some charges to the state govt coffers, like their Igbo counterparts in Lagos
Yoruba community in Anambra State condemns kidnap of 21 Igbo traders
By Okey Maduforo, Correspondent, Awka
Yoruba community in Anambra State, under the umbrella of Egbe Omo Oduduwa has condemned the alleged kidnap of 21 Igbo traders in Owo, Ondo State, warning that it is a threat on the unity and peaceful coexistence of Nigeria as a nation.
The traders were allegedly kidnapped last Friday by three militant groups known as Palace Boys, Eyin Ogbe Boys and Iloro Youths, who demanded millions of naira as ransom before they would be released.
The militants had last year kidnapped 16 Igbo traders before the latest incident which led to a petition to the state Commissioner of Police Mr. Charles Dawodu, by Ndigbo in the community.
Speaking with Daily Independent in Awka, Anambra State, the chairman of **Egbe Omo Oduduwa** in the area Baba Tunde Adegbenjo, said the incident sends danger signals, adding that there is no state in the country that do not have militants.
"We want to condemn the action and attitude of these militants. We have militants all over the federation and they should consider the fact that if they continue with this other people will revenge and when they do, it becomes crisis everywhere.
"So we are not happy with the attitude of our people back home who gather themselves together and call themselves militants.
"The relation of any of those victims would look for people around to kidnap and those of us outside the Yoruba land or non-indigenes generally would become victims. If this type of thing continues we will have no option but to point to the residence of part of Yoruba land where these activities are taking place.
"The place where it happened is Owo community, so instead of allowing them to go and revenge on Ogwoko man or Akure or Ondo town, we will now point to the residence of the Owo people among us; so that they will go and pick them. This is because things like this spread like wild fire and we will not allow that to happen."
Adegbenjo further noted that security is very important in business interaction and such a thing can affect business between visitors and owners of the land.
"If an Igboman do not feel safe to do business in Yoruba land they will not go there and those of us in Igbo land will not be comfortable and these are the type of incident we experienced some time ago, when the Hausa people had problems with the Igbos and many lives were lost.
"We do not want this type of thing and this is how it starts. So we have to tell our people to stop all these nonsense they are doing. It will not discourage economic development and sound interpersonal relationship in the country."
He urged the Ondo State government to take action quickly to protect the interest of the Igbo in the area as Yoruba and other ethnic groups are being protected in the South East zone; adding that the people at the zone and their respective governments have been friendly and displayed the spirit of brotherhood among visitors and settlers in Igbo land.

Also do not forget that GLO and typical Yoruba-owned Banks (GT, FCMB, etc) have some of their biggest outposts (I mean outside of Lagos) in Igboland. Those pay taxes to the state govts too.

Yes, they are reinvesting. That is why you find the best houses in Nigeria in Igboland. Many of those are owned by Lagos-based Igbo, som eof whom left Igboland only with travelling bags. FACT. Many of the current Nnewi industrialists made their seed money from Lagos.

Sometimes I wonder if some of you passed ENGLISH comprehension test at all.
Let me helep you summarize them:
1. The first e.g. shows that a Yorubaman is the owner of a large and reputable private school in Enugu State (that is investment that pays taxes)
2. The second e.g. shows that a Yoruba man is the owner of the only private taxi cab company in Abia with 100 taxis (that is taxable investment)
3. The third e.g. shows Yoruba community in Abia organizing themselves to begin to contribute to the development of their host community
Do you want more examples?

Yes, Igbos in Lagos pay taxes but make huge profits or turnover from the huge buying population of Lagos. So the tax they pay to the govt is overly replenished by their profits. If it does not make economic sense to them, they would not be there, I guess

The lace clothing material lines in Ariaria and Onitsha markets have sizable Yoruba trading populations. They pay markets fees, etc, just like the Igbos in Lagos

I know say your eye dey pain you due to old age. Three Yoruba investments in Igboland have I listed above. There are certainly more because Yorubas are getting wise now and getting out of their cocoons . Take time to read my last 3 posts.

Yoruba in Abia appoint monarch
Latest News May 25, 2010 Umuahia—Alhaji Adebayo Azeez, President of the Yoruba Forum, an umbrella body of Yoruba associations, said the forum is to appoint an Oba in Abia to cater for the interest of the Yoruba community in the state.
Azeez said in Umuahia, yesterday that the measure was necessary to enable various Yoruba groups in the state unite, their political affiliations and other differences notwithstanding.
He applauded the cordial relationship existing between the Yorubas and other ethinc groups in the state.
Azeez, who is the pioneer leader of the group, commended the process that led to his emergence as the leader of the body.
He said, however, that anyone who emerged as the new Oba would be someone influential, educated and philanthropic, to achieve the objectives and yearnings of the people.
He said the Yoruba were ready to partner with Abia State government in the task of ensuring peace and developing the state, noting that the Oba would be the rallying point of Yorubas in Abia.
“We are united in this cause of enthroning an Oba because since the creation of the state 19 years ago, this singular headship has eluded us,” he said.
He said the organisation would contribute to the growth and development of its host communities through conceptualisation and execution of projects.

Hello Taxi storms Abia with 100 cabs
By Matthias Nwogu – Umuahia
Friday, March 13, 2009
Buoyed by the successful take-off of the Abia State urban taxi and bus scheme, Car Nation, a private Transporter has launched 100 taxies into the urban centres of Aba and Umuahia to ameliorate the sufferings of commuters.
More Stories on this Section
The taxi scheme, the first of its kind by a private body and known as Hello Taxi is seen as a welcome development which will not only augment the existing ones but bring in an alternative to the rickety cabs that ply the Aba metropolis
Taxi operations became acute in the Aba and Umuahia metropolis since 2008 when government banned commercial motor cyclists (Okada) from plying the streets between 6.00 pm and am every day.
The taxi scheme which is in partnership with the state government is made up with Mappler 50 cars which would give commuters a taste of luxury
Briefing newsmen on the development, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Car Nation, Mr. Jimi Lewu, disclosed that Abia was their first port of call in Nigeria, stressing that the number of cars to be deployed to any part of the state would be driven by demand.
“We are starting with 100 because we want demand to drive additional need for cars in any locality. When I say serviceable, the trend usually in a lot of places is for people to supply services without a maintenance contract. Our scheme has in-built maintenance contract,” he said.
He explained that the decision to start with Abia State was informed by several considerations including the commercial nature of Aba, the peaceful atmosphere in Umuahia and the current enabling environment created by the Theodore Orji administration and expressed confidence that they would do good business in the state. Mr. Lewu, who hinted that the company would open offices in Aba and Umuahia including mechanic workshops, employ and train their drivers and ancillary staff, also disclosed that the offices would contain computerized taxi dispatch centers.
“The scheme is not gong to be run by a taxi brokering scheme; that is what obtains here. We are going to be heavily involved in logistics management. It means that we will be involved in the operational efficiency of the scheme, then as we go on we will work with the transport unions to evolve partnership,” he said, adding that they would work with the transport unions after the scheme has been firmly established so that they would keep the standard already set.
The CEO said the company was not afraid of competition because it has high standards as well as efficient service delivery adding that the project would be operational in five other States which he did not immediately disclose by the end of march with the overall goal of covering the entire federation by end of the year .
He said the company would also establish mechanic workshops and employ drivers among other staff after adequate training adding that the offices would contain computerized taxi dispatch centre .
He said the maple R50 cabs to be used for transport scheme was durable and strong for Ngerian roads adding that the company would manage the scheme before inviting the Transport Union
While commending Abia State Governor Chief Theodore Orji for his support to the scheme promised to reciprocate the gesture by maintaining the highest standard and creating employment for indigenes of the state.
If the scheme succeeds it would change transportation in the two urban centres which for a long time have not enjoyed real intra city commuting

Still waiting for Igbo money printers; its been 24 hours now. I told you that though some Igbos do bad things, there are a number of bad things Yoruba do that Igbos do not do (and the opposite is not correct). Printing fake money (not buying fake money from your brothers and trying to resell them) and marrying or sleeping with your own daughter in order to acquire British residency papers are some of those. Those 2 vices are exclusive to Yoruba. But I want you to prove me wrong.
