ACCRA, 24th January 2018:

THE Nigeria High Commissioner to Ghana HE Amb Femi Michael Abikoye in the company of the Head of Chancery Mr. Hong paid a courtesy visit to the Executive Director of FARA Dr Yemi Akinbamijo. During the visit, the Ambassador also met with the President of the Bazil-Africa Institute – Prof Joao Bosco Monte to discuss issues of mutual benefits between Brazil and Africa. Ahead of the opening of the Africa Office of the Instituto Brasil Africa scheduled to happen later in the year, IBRAF is also working on a draft Memorandum of Understanding with FARA as one of its strategic partners in Africa.

During the courtesy visit, the Ambassador applauds the evolving partnership between FARA and IBRAF while appreciating the great effort deployed to strengthen the science in agricultural production systems through the Science Agenda for Agriculture (S3A). The Ambassador further reiterates his willingness to strengthen South-South Collaboration initiatives as a possible strategy to checkmate the needless harrowing migrations across the Mediterranean Sea.
