Members of the public have been advised to engage in Agricultural commodity investment as the best global business alternative.
This was part of the key point raised in an Albarka Radio participatory program Gatarin Gwari that focused on commodity exchange as a way of resuscitating the business sector.
Elaborating on the initiative, the Secretary Commodity Exchange Committee, Bauchi Investment Corporation BIC Mr Yohana Iliya said the BIC deemed it necessary to initiate the Commodity Exchange sector to provide a reliable business-class to business persons so as to substitute the crashed cash business class.
Mr Yohana Iliya revealed that the move was a result of the epidemics that bedevilled the cash business class which according to him left most factories and manufacturers as well as investors with no other alternative than to invest in Agricultural Commodity.
Mr Yohana used the medium to call on the farmers and relevant traders to patronize the initiative assuring them of maximum reliability.
Contributing, an economist, Professor Bala Suleiman Dalhat of Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University ATBU Bauchi who rated the program as effective, charged the initiators on the need to put in place the proactive methods to ensure the success of the initiative.
The professor advised the BIC as a broker to be buying the commodity directly from not only the small scale but large scale farmers, calling on the government to provide the farmers with all the facilities needed, in order to boost their economic status.
Also commenting, Yakubu Muhammad from the association of Soya beans farmers, admitted that the initiative is welcomed by all reasonable farmers
