Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Vin­cent A. Yusuf

The Board of Trustee of the All Farm­ers As­so­ci­a­tion of Nige­ria (AFAN) yesterday said the farm­ers’ body will be re­or­ga­nized and rec­on­ciled war­ring fac­tions.

A mem­ber of the Trustee, Dr Shet­tima Mustafa stated that the board ac­knowl­edged the ap­peals and pleas by in­di­vid­ual and group mem­bers of AFAN to the Trustees in re­cent times to bring about unity and un­der­stand­ing among of the farm­ers’ apex body.

In a state­ment yesterday, Dr Mustafa said: “There is no gain­say­ing that in the last few years, se­ries of mis­un­der­stand­ings have crept into AFAN to the ex­tent of threat­en­ing the com­mon­ness of pur­pose and the phi­los­o­phy/ob­jec­tive of float­ing it in the first in­stance.”

He said the three Trustees, in whose names AFAN was reg­is­tered, have dis­cussed the mat­ter and de­cided to take nec­es­sary steps to bring about the re­quired har­mony and progress among the farm­ers.

“In so do­ing, con­cerned stake­hold­ers should be rest as­sured that they will be in­volved as ap­pro­pri­ate and there­fore be pa­tient and al­low the Trustees to han­dle the mat­ter soon­est,” he stated.
