THE governments of Nigeria and Brazil have reached an accord to begin rice production in Nigeria as part of efforts to boost food production and agriculture.

The agreement is also expected to cover housing and sewage management with a goal to provide a good life for Nigerians.

The two countries showed the interest to cooperate on these levels at a meeting between a business delegation from Brazil, and the Permanent Secretary of Nigeria's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Bulus Lolo, who represented Nigeria at the meeting.

Leader of the Brazilian delegation, Evaldo Silva Junior, told journalists in an interview that the delegation was in Nigeria to establish businesses in the areas of construction, agriculture and also management of the sewage.

According to him, Brazil produces 70 per cent of total production of rice in South America.

"We are here to help Nigeria produce rice, develop rice production in Nigeria and to go into discussion about supplying rice to meet up with the extra demand of that will not be met by the production in Nigeria".

"Concerning the sewage management, we are here to have a project, which will help manage the sewage, and change what is coming from the sewage, into bio-fuels through selective process," he said.

In the area of civil construction, Silva noted that Brazil will deploy its technology to assist Nigeria build houses for the poor and people of low income class at cheaper costs and faster rate, using the model known in Brazil as "My Life, My Health", he said.

Responding, Permanent Secretary, Bulus Lolo, represented by the Director of African Bilateral Affairs Department in the Ministry, Ambassador Ozo Nwobu, said, "this is a momentous time for us in Nigeria, there is a tremendous good will for Nigeria and what we as Nigerians must do is to hold ourselves ready to partner with those who will give us impetus for change.
