O Presidente guineense, José Mário Vaz, avisou hoje que deu ordens ao ministro da Agricultura para expropriar campos agrícolas às pessoas que não os querem trabalhar e dá-los a quem os cultive.

"Vou avisar aos que têm bolanhas (campos de cultivo de arroz), mas que não querem trabalhar, que esses lugares lhes serão retirados para dar a quem os quer lavrar", disse José Mário Vaz, num comício popular na localidade de Ingoré, no norte do país, junto à fronteira com o Senegal.

The decision by the government of Jigawa State to hand over 12,000 hectares of land spread across four local government areas to a Chinese investor is threatening the livelihood of about 150,000 persons in the state.

The 12,000 hectares are spread across Gagarawa, Taura, Suletankarkar and Garki local government areas of the state.

The state government had in 2014 signed a Memorandum of Understanding, MOU, with the Lee Group to allocate land to the company to set up a sugarcane plantation with a view to setting up a Sugar factory.
