I read Prof Philip Nje­manze’s stand on GMO crops in Nige­ria in your last edi­tion, his anal­y­sis was sci­en­tific and rea­son­able. My hope is that rel­e­vant gov­ern­ment au­thor­i­ties would con­sider vary­ing opin­ions on the pol­icy be­fore im­pos­ing it on us. Thank you, may God bless Nige­ria. - Sam­son Audu, La­pai, Niger State.

Edi­tor, please help us tell the Min­is­ter of Agri­cul­ture, Chief Audu Og­beh, that ru­ral farm­ers are yet to ben­e­fit from his pro­gramme so far. For in­stance, when are we get­ting sub­sidised farm in­puts? Is it after the wet sea­son farm­ing? Let him an­swer these ques­tions please. Thanks. - Toyin Ajayi, Gwag­wal­ada, Abuja.

Edi­tor, Nige­ri­ans are not say­ing much on the ex­ten­sion of the ban placed on our beans by the Euro­pean Union. I read it re­cently on these pages and it is quite dis­turb­ing. Is it that our gov­ern­ment failed to cor­rect what the EU no­ticed that was wrong in the first year of the ban? May God help Nige­ria. - Aminu, Gombe, Gombe State.

Aminu, our in­ter­view with Dr. Vin­cent Isegbe, the Co­or­di­nat­ing Direc­tor, Nige­rian Agri­cul­tural Quar­an­tine Ser­vices, is pub­lished to­day and you can find more on the ban from it. - Edi­tor.
