CTA Info Service in Nigeria repositioning towards poverty reduction, food security and improved agricultural productivity

Nigeri'a Daily Trust newspaper has an article about the CTA-supported 'Nigerian Agricultural Question and Answer Service (NAQAS)' in which it is proposed that the service "needs to be repositioned to properly disseminate vital information to the farmers" and other stakeholders.

While NAQAS "has answered 3420 questions", the service is "lopsided as it is accessed more by students and teachers while the farmers for whom it was established are left out."
