Farmers association warns members against fake NGOs


The All Farmers Association of Nigeria (AFAN) in Niger state North–Central Nigeria has warned its members to beware of fraudsters posing as Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) to defraud them.

Mr. Shehu Galadima, the state AFAN Chairman said in Minna, the state’s capital that the fraudsters go to villages pretending to be NGOs or international organisations intervening in specific areas of agriculture.

The AFAN chairman also urged the government to put a mechanism in place against the ugly practice.

According to him, AFAN in the state is already sensitizing its members on this development and how to identify the real donor agencies.
