    This is a laudable project that will revamp the Agriculture value-chain in Nigeria, coming from the wake of food shortages in the nations. Special thanks to the President of Wealthfield and his dynamic team, Africunia Bank for this partnership, God bless you all. Indeed hope has come to the farmers and people of Nigeria.
