UK MPs ask questions on rice plantation development in Nigeria

The Dominion Farms, a project which forms part of the UK-backed New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition in Africa and the Nigerian government's Agricultural Transformation Agenda, are establishing a 30,000 ha rice plantation located in Nigeria's north eastern state of Taraba. However, there has been an outcry as local farmers are being forced from their land. Dominion aims to enhance food security and livelihoods for small farmers in Nigeria but the local population together with British MPs (Diane Abbott MP) question the project.
