The Federal Ministry of Water Resources has called on the private sector to invest in activities of the River basins to enable the country meet its food security target.

The Director, River Basin Operations and Inspectorate, Mr John Ochigbo, made this call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.

He said that government alone cannot meet the needs of Agriculture because of insufficient financial resources.

Ochigbo also called for the removal of impediments to land ownership and acquisition by state government to reduce the challenges facing the river basins in the country.
