Association decries poor perception of Nigerian cotton abroad


The National Cotton Association of Nigeria (NACOTAN) has frowned at the poor perception of Nigerian grown cotton at the international market.

Mr. Anibe Achimugu, the President of the association made this known on Monday in Abuja.

Achimugu said that the poor perception was a hindrance and had contributed to the discounted rate of the produce at the international market.

He however expressed optimism that the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Anchor Borrowers Programme would address the negative perception if well implemented.

He said that the CBN programme would address issues of poor quality, markets and seeds faced by cotton farmers in the country.
