He added that the successful production of urea in Rivers state, which was used mostly by northern farmers underscored the need for national unity.

"Urea Fertiliser products are used by farmers, especially in northern part of the country. That tells us that we must unite. We must support ourselves irrespective of party affiliation. Without peace, there will be no urea. For all of us in Nigeria, let's work in the interest of our country," he said.
