WIFE, ALIKE HUSBAND, MRS IKPEAZU MAKES CASE FOR HUGE REVENUE GENERATION THROUGH AGRICULTURE
It is common knowledge that one of the pillars of administration of the State Governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu is agriculture. And he has so far revolutionized agriculture thus developing many sub sectors such as palm oil, rice, mushroom, poultry, cassava and others.
Equally, the Wife of the Governor, Mrs Nkechi Ikpeazu in her usually mannerism of supporting the husband's efforts in developing Abia State utilized her recent visit to Ghana to look around for opportunities that will benefit Abians. Mrs. Nkechi Ikpeazu, who was in Accra Ghana last week for Women's Summit, used the opportunity to visit the Ayeshua Starch Processing Plant in Bawjiase Region of Ghana. The Ayeshua Plant of course is the biggest starch processing plant in West Africa with an installed capacity of 70,000 metric per day.
The good thing about this move by the Wife of the Governor is that the Governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu has mooted a policy of generating huge revenue for the State through cassava. He had said that the drivers of the proposed policy would be the Abia women farmers.
Hence, Mrs. Nkechi Ikpeazu visit to the expansive Ayeshua cassava plant and farms could be described as a proactive move aimed at getting firsthand information that would aid decisions when the policy rolls off in Abia State.
Cassava is huge money globally as serves as food for millions of people. It also serves as drugs, cosmetics etc. The starch extract gotten from cassava alone worths $32billion globally(11 trillion naira). So any one who engages in the business would be economically empowered.
Abia is home to a lot of cassava farmers, especially, women and the Abia soil is arable. So, if mobilized properly the State has capacity to rake in millions of dollars in revenue and income for farmers. This is what Governor Ikpeazu and the wife intends to for Abia people. And that is making the cassava business very attractive and money yielding venture too.
The visionary thinking Governor of the State, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu deserves commendation for this plan of making cassava a big business. And for the wife of the Governor, it is "like husband like wife" as Mrs. Ikpeazu has already secured the future of her fellow women in the State through becoming proactive in a venture that would favour them greatly. She is really a woman with Midas touch.
What is expected of Abians is continuous support and prayer that the aspirations of the Governor and the wife would be actualized. The women particularly, should mobilize their fellow women, husbands and children to sustain their support for the Governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu as he leads Abia till 2023.
To God be the glory!
