Great Shock!!! ‘Jonathan’ To Return Over 100 Stolen Vehicles To Buhari’s EFCC

The Minister of State for Agriculture and Rural Development, Senator Heineken Lokpobiri, has said that top officials that worked with former President, Goodluck Jonathan, stole over 100 vehicles from the Ministry of Agriculture.

He stated that efforts are being made by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to recover the stolen vehicles.

The Minister, made this disclosure while inaugurating the 61-man National Technical Working Group, NTWG, for the Development of Global Gap Standards in Nigeria, in Abuja.

He said: “Over a hundred vehicles were taken away from the Ministry of Agriculture by some people. We are recovering them with the help of the EFCC, and they are returning them.”

Speaking on the Committee, the Minister said: “it is pertinent to state that all agricultural and food value chain actors need sustainable access to a substantial share of the international market, noting that there are a set of strict standards known as global GAP Standards that must be adhered to.”

Consequently, he added: “It becomes imperative for us as a team to synergise and work towards adapting the Global GAP Standards through the NTWG. The National Technical Working Group has been put together and driven by the private sector to ensure that as a country, we access the International market optimally”.

“I want to assure the NTWG which is made up of various umbrella associations that we are strongly behind the course of the global good agricultural practice standards”.
