The new Huguenots

Not a perfect match, but the fact of expropriated Zimbabwean farmers being welcomed to Nigeria smacks of it.

As Libération reports, the Nigerian states of Nassarawa and Kwara have persuaded white farmers from Zim to farm in their states. Loans and about 45,000 acres have been allocated to each farmer persuaded to head north.

Nigeria suffers from chronic under use of land, and one farmer quoted reckons he can quintuple the manioc yield per acre, having already tripled it, and is employing 100 people already

Good luck to all concerned.

Countries all round Zimbabwe have benefited from the arrival of displaced skilled white Zim farmers.
