|Oyo, UK Firm Sign Agreement On Soya Milk Production by Paul John: 1:26pm On Nov 09, 2012|
9 November 2012 , By Yemi Bamidele, Source: Daily Trust
The Oyo State government has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with a United Kingdom-based milk producing company, Kama Milk Industry, for the processing and production of soya milk.
When established, the company which is expected to gulp $25 million (N4 billion), will be producing about 750,000 metric tons of soya milk per annum, aside the provision of about 100,000 jobs for the people of the state.
Governor Abiola Ajimobi, who presided over the signing ceremony, said the development was the product of his many foreign trips which were aimed at improving the economy of the state and enhancing the living standard of the people.
The governor assured the management of the company that government would provide the enabling environment to enhance its success.
"We are indeed ready to partner with you and provide the enabling environment that will make you succeed and all that is required of us to promote and make progress in Oyo State," he said.
Speaking earlier, the Managing Director of Kama Milk Industry, Mr. Dipak Mirchandani, lauded the governor for having the interest of the state at heart.

It'll go a long way in the development of the state, with increase in internal revenue.

very good move.
why dont nigerian state government share resources and information?
this was a perfected business project in kwara state.
waste of resource.
|Re: Oyo, UK Firm Sign Agreement On Soya Milk Production by Gbawe: 2:08pm On Nov 09, 2012|
Indeed. Ajimobi is a technocrat par excellence and I expect him to come good for Oyo. Ajimobi should be in his element regarding the attraction of FDI (foreign direct investments) to Oyo State. I hope to see more of this sort of development.

enough of these proposals dt never materialize,it is better you complete the project and subsequently announce it to the public.
i would like to hear/read something like this; o[b]yo state has commissioned soya milk production company[/b]
|Re: Oyo, UK Firm Sign Agreement On Soya Milk Production by Afam4eva(m): 2:24pm On Nov 09, 2012|
Gbawe:You're right Ajimobi is a technocrat because he's in ACN. If a PDP governor had done exact the same thing people like you would have castigated him. Anyways, i believe this is a good development. Let's see how things will pan out.
|Re: Oyo, UK Firm Sign Agreement On Soya Milk Production by Akin-David: 2:25pm On Nov 09, 2012|
Government always like UK-Firm, US-Firm, Sweden-Firm..especially when it involve $Million contracts. We need to strengthen our own local institution to carry out large scale projects. Good if it materialize into the objectives but bad if it still the old wine in a newer bottle.

Soya milk? Ok, i pray it works. God let things work well for naija. Amen
|Re: Oyo, UK Firm Sign Agreement On Soya Milk Production by ayinba1(f): 2:30pm On Nov 09, 2012|
There is nothing impressive about this. "Foreign/abroad"does not automatically translate to "better". The leadreship in Oyo state has really fallen short of expectations. This appears to be a desperate attempt to show that Ajimobi is doing something.
Is it the same Oyo state where wives of political office holders were sent on a wasteful trip abroad? What was that training for again?
Or the state government that sacked teachers because anyone whose records indicate that they may have graduated elementary school before the age of 10 was deemed fraudulent?
Aji se bi Oyo laari oo, nuff said.
Kama milk company is non existent per web searches. Mr Dipak was in media business for the past 20 years and just came into the food processing business in January 2012. This stinks to the high heavens.
UK residents, you can easily confirm if such a company is a UK firm. It is past time that we hold our leaders accountable!

Oga Gbawe don start wit hailings o, d same Ajimobi denizens of Oyo state criticize daily has become a technocrat? I think it is too early to toot his horn. Laudable project nonetheless but Nigerians have seen so many of these proposals dat never see the light of day and just end in papers and signatures.
|Re: Oyo, UK Firm Sign Agreement On Soya Milk Production by GboyegaD(m): 2:34pm On Nov 09, 2012|
kunlekunle: very good move.
Because often times, government seems to be competitive in Nigeria however, in this case, it is a better idea provided that there wouldn't be unnecessary surplus of soy milk.

Minion:Ur Anguishness! I like the fact that the whites are taking a keen interest in Nigeria?

I googled it up now and am also suprised a company worth such a hype is not available on the web. Methinks this smirks of some suspicion.
|Re: Oyo, UK Firm Sign Agreement On Soya Milk Production by J12: 2:50pm On Nov 09, 2012|
Dem go sign MoU even for common soya milk production. What a shame

Do you know what a technocrat is? See below and do some research into Ajimobi's work/professional history and come back to tell us whether he cannot be called a technocrat merely because some in Oyo "criticize" him or are unhappy with his leadership. My point is that Ajimobi's professional history marks him out as someone who should possess the ability to succeed at governance because he is able to deploy a technocratic and solution-driven approach to public administration because of his professional life before politics. I am one of those who feels Ajimobi can/should do more. This development is thus a welcomed development and more in line with what we expected of him. I.e the attraction of income/employment boosting FDI to Oyo State.
1. An adherent or a proponent of technocracy.
|Re: Oyo, UK Firm Sign Agreement On Soya Milk Production by ayinba1(f): 3:08pm On Nov 09, 2012|
With all due respect, I would like youto tell us what Ajimobi has done for Oyo state that qualifies him to be regarded aa a technocrat? Or easier still, tell us of his previous mangerial or leadership accomplishments.
|Re: Oyo, UK Firm Sign Agreement On Soya Milk Production by Gbawe: 3:15pm On Nov 09, 2012|
Why are you such an irritating and irredeemably spiteful and hateful character? Do you know what a technocrat is? I know what a technocrat is and would never deny anyone of being such simply because of Party affiliation. That is the domain of clannish people like you who have no appreciation of how Professional/technocratic expertise is not something any sensible person can deny.
You should be ashamed of how you always speak foolishly because of the sentiment and bias that drive you before you engage your brain. You are condemned to see a "them vs us" to everything. I call Ajimobi a technocrat because he is one !!!! Simple !!!
|Re: Oyo, UK Firm Sign Agreement On Soya Milk Production by Afam4eva(m): 3:18pm On Nov 09, 2012|
Gbawe:It's really not my business whether Ajimobi is a technocrat or not. My point is that your party clannishness never allows you to appreciate something good except it's coming from the only progressive party in Nigeria, ACN. If Jonathan has done this same thing, your kind would have trooped in high number to use mouth to insult and denigrate his resolve. Learn to say the truth whether or not it's coming from a particular quarter.
|Re: Oyo, UK Firm Sign Agreement On Soya Milk Production by Paul John: 3:24pm On Nov 09, 2012|
@gbawe, why not just overlook some posts at times.
Some lads are here to castigate others progress.
|Re: Oyo, UK Firm Sign Agreement On Soya Milk Production by Gbawe: 3:24pm On Nov 09, 2012|
ayinba1: Mr Gbawe,
With all due respect, do you know what a technocrat is to understand it has nothing to do with Ajimobi's performance as a governor? Being described as a technocrat has everything to do with his achievements in his professional life that demonstrated skills which singles him out as a technical expert.
It is just ridiculous you are asking me to tell you of Ajimobi's previous history. Do I owe you a history lesson merely because I used the right term to describe someone? What manner of intellectual laziness is that? Are you not online? Can you simple not google the man to find the information you need?
|Re: Oyo, UK Firm Sign Agreement On Soya Milk Production by ayinba1(f): 3:31pm On Nov 09, 2012|
Thank you for your response. This is the profile that I saw and I thought "Finally, Oyo state willl shine again". Alas, thos hopes have been dashed multiple times. How long then do we have to wait before we call it what it is? I have family and friends in Oyo state and even though they are thankful that Akala is gone, they had hoped for better governace with Ajimobi. This appears to be all it is; hope.
Coming back to this press release., there is an article from around May this year talking about a Nigeria based KARMA SOYA CO, brokering a $20 million dollar deal in Abuja for soy production with Mr Dipak at the helm. Now Oyo state claims a $25 million dollar deal with a Uk based KAMA MILK INDUSTRY for soy milk.
So which is it, KAMA OR KARMA.? NIGERIA OR UK BASED.?
How much soya bean is grown in Oyo state? Where is the destination for exports? Who provides the $25 million dollars?
This is either a government that has become comfortable because citizens do not ask the right questions or shoddy journalism.
|Re: Oyo, UK Firm Sign Agreement On Soya Milk Production by Gbawe: 3:31pm On Nov 09, 2012|
Shameless dolt. You are simply annoying. Did you not suggest I deemed Ajimobi a technocrat merely because he is an ACN leader? Now, after being exposed for not know Ajimobi is indeed a technocrat, you change tact. Why should I start an acknowledgement rota about others in a thread concerning Oyo? When have I failed to give credit where due to administrators who are doing well yet not in the ACN Party? Get a life dude. You are pathetic.
Whatever drives you is patently rotten even if you don't see it. If you claim I don't praise anyone not ACN, why do you never have such criticism for others who go out of their way to always rubbish everything to do with other ethnic groups and Political Parties they dislike? Do you see me ever doing that here?
Do you see me, like you do with anything ACN administrators, trying to discredit Amaechi, Lamido, Akpabio, Okorocha, Chime et al on this forum and belittle or dismiss their achievements? Dude, you are sad. Go and enjoy your Friday and stop running from pillar to post trying to make points that don't exist.
|Re: Oyo, UK Firm Sign Agreement On Soya Milk Production by ayinba1(f): 3:34pm On Nov 09, 2012|
I posted my thanks before I read your response which I find very amusing and unusual. I gues NL is changing you.
Intellectual laziness is not something that you can accuse me of, I will most definitely not accuse you of same because if I would, that question would not be asked of you.
Having said that, we must be very cautious of how we evaluate and rate information or we will become another Beaf or whatever moniker he uses now.
|Re: Oyo, UK Firm Sign Agreement On Soya Milk Production by Gbawe: 3:41pm On Nov 09, 2012|
Instead of this egotistical pontifications, some of you should simply hold up your hand and apologise when you offend others , so amicable discussion can flow, instead of running from pillar to post to try and legitimise what you have done wrong. I used the right term to qualify Ajimobi i.e technocrat. Instead you went on the offensive to show, without doubt, you appear not to know what a technocrat is:
With all due respect, I would like youto tell us what Ajimobi has done for Oyo state that qualifies him to be regarded aa a technocrat?
Guy, show some honour and admit you spoke out of turn. I just cannot understand why Nigerians cannot simply accept they are wrong and move on. It takes nothing away from you and does not demean you. Instead, it shows character. Barth Nnaji is a technocrat and it is not his achievement, or lack of it, as Minister of power that indicates whether he is a technocrat or not.
|Re: Oyo, UK Firm Sign Agreement On Soya Milk Production by ayinba1(f): 3:44pm On Nov 09, 2012|
Nothing personal, but had to go back and reread to figure out how on earth I misunderstood you.
|Re: Oyo, UK Firm Sign Agreement On Soya Milk Production by Afam4eva(m): 3:44pm On Nov 09, 2012|
Gbawe:Please let's try as much as possible to be civilized. I made a simple statement judging from what i noticed and instead of you to take correction and move on, you're busy justifying your clannishness in the most undesirable manner. We may support a particular party but that shouldn't stop of from saying the truth at all times. I commend this particular initiative even though i'm not an ACN member or supporter.
|Re: Oyo, UK Firm Sign Agreement On Soya Milk Production by ayinba1(f): 3:48pm On Nov 09, 2012|
It's alright. You used to be so much better than this. What happened to you?
Thank you for the lecture. I am not sure how I offended you. I simply asked you a question, an honest one at that but you are taking it a different way.
Don't use words that are more complex that I would need a dictionary for. Again, for the most part, I am on your side, but today, you are very much like Beaf and that sir is totally unbecoming.
Just so you know, I would not descend to that low level.
If a leader is not living to expectation, I will speak up.
Again, my focus for now is on the SouthWest leaders because "ile la ti nkesho rode"
|Re: Oyo, UK Firm Sign Agreement On Soya Milk Production by Gbawe: 3:57pm On Nov 09, 2012|
You are a joker. You are the one who should take correction. Answer this. Was I not correct to address Ajimobi as a technocrat? Are you therefore not a total for trying to stain my character via suggesting I called him such because he is an ACN leader?
Do you think I am a clannish and feudal person like you who sees everything along an ethnic/sectional line to the extent my common sense is compromised? Dude, I am a person with professional skills also with good technocratic ability and expertise . I would never deny such of others, as you simplistically suggest, because of their choice of political Party.
You have no point and are just irritating. You should prove your point and show where, even once, I have denied that Okonjo-Iweala, Aganga, Nnaji, Rilwan Lukman, Ezekwesili et al are not technocrats merely because they work/worked for PDP governments. People like you attack others by attempting to stain their character and never giving them peace here. When they get annoyed and respond, you are then running from pillar to post and making non-existent points to shore up your junk behaviour instead of simply apologizing.
