OPINION:COCOA FROM ADAMAWA, a feature by Timawus Mathias

When it comes to politics, commerce, industry, and agriculture, Awwal D. Tukur is a daredevil. He is a chip off the old block and when you grow up under the wings of Pa Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, you can not but be dogged, calculating, and daring in goal pursuits.

When Awwal dared to pilot Tukur’s Daddo Farms, he targeted the world market working with institutes to develop a variety of export products that would do well in Adamawa. Mango and guava had already caught on.

Tukur found them unchallenging. He targeted fish, for local consumption, and went after gum Arabic and cocoa for export.

For cocoa, voila, Awwal poses proudly, with first-grade pods, produced in farms in Adamawa State Nigeria, where the company has vast lands to engage in industrial-scale mass production. Not just Adamawa State is with Awwal Tukur in the grinning from ear to ear.

The whole Northern Nigeria below latitude 12° is Congratulations trailblazer Awwal Tukur, Chairman of Council Adamawa State University, and PDP stalwart.
