Chief Audu Ogbeh, the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, has congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari on his victory and re-election at the Feb. 23 Presidential and National Assembly elections.

A statement by Mr. Mohammed Nakorji, the Director Information in the ministry on Friday in Abuja, also assured citizens that the ministry would consolidate on its achievements in the president’s second tenure.

Ogbeh said that Buhari’s second term in office would move the country’s agriculture sector to the next level.

“The president’s victory at the poll did not come as a surprise especially with the giant strides recorded in the nation’s agriculture sector, particularly the rice revolution among others,’’ he said.

Buhari won the keenly contested presidential election defeating his closest opponent, Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The president polled 15, 191,847 votes to defeat Abubakar who polled 11,262,978 votes. (NNN)
