This event is very timely and strategic as the Nigeria National Accreditation System (NiNAS) has the mandate to support economic growth and competitiveness by collaboration, partnership, facilitation, coordination, and synergy. In line with these objectives, NiNAS is partnering and collaborating with strategic organizations and agencies to ensure Nigeria achieves national, regional, and global competitiveness.
The MOU signing between NiNAS and Ekap Achi Foundation (EKAF) is aimed at supporting and facilitating processes that will enhance compliance to the standards and certification requirements through Accreditation; in this case, farms, farmers, products, produce, commodities and services.
This partnership presents a new paradigm as it will promote confidence, trust and accountability among and between stakeholders.
Other participants present at this grand event (MOU signing ceremony) include the Cross River Basin Development Authority (CRBDA), Cross River National Park (CRNP) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
