.As NESP targets 100,000 hectares of farmlands in 36 States in 12 months- Presidency
This is part of the NESP recently approved by the Federal Executive Council FEC which is targeting a reduction in average production costs of crude oil.
A presidency statement said the Integrated Personnel and Payment Information System (IPPIS) will be expanded to cover all Federal Government MDAs. Non-critical and administrative capital spending will be eliminated, including the purchase of vehicles (except for ambulances, fire-fighting vehicles, and other essentials).
This is just as the Nigeria Economic Sustainability Plan (NESP), approved by the Federal Executive Council (FEC) on June 24, has also targetted development of nothing less than 100,000 hectares of agricultural land within the next 12 months.
