Abiodun Gives Free Land To 2,000 Farmers by Busy002: 6:29am On Sep 08
Governor Dapo Abiodun has flagged off the Ogun State Anchor Borrowers’ Scheme, signalling the commencement of an agricultural revolution in the state

Speaking at the June 12 Cultural Centre, Abeokuta, the state capital, venue of the launch, Abiodun said that his government plans to turn the state into an agricultural hub, capable of feeding itself and other states in the country.

He said the Anchor Borrowers’ Scheme was another avenue to boost the nation’s self-sufficiency in food production, which is line with the federal government’s agenda on food security to save foreign exchange spent annually on importation of food items that could be produced locally.

The governor also said that the scheme would help in creating employment opportunities for farmers, women and the youths in the state.

Already, about 2000 beneficiaries have been selected and would be given certificates of acceptance and leasehold, according to the governor.

He expressed surprise that despite the success of the scheme in other states, Ogun State did not take full advantage of funds availability in the scheme to help farmers improve their production.

According to the governor, the scheme was a tripartite agreement between the state as facilitator, Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, as financier and the beneficiaries, even as he called on the recipients to be committed and responsible in their repayment plan.

Abiodun assured that beneficiaries of the scheme would be given one hectare of land free.

“We will also provide clearing, seedlings, fertilizers, extension services and we will pay upkeep allowances until the first harvest,” he added.

And which 'koko' is that? The one inside Garri or what? As long as the lands are going to REAL farmers then no reasonable person will fault this development because it will translate into economic and productive gains.

Good one from Dapo. We hope they see it through to completion, because that's another problem with Nigeria.


Here's a list of 45 visa free countries for Nigerians.

Fuji house of commotion. Large scale industrial farming is the only way forward. Perhaps the governor just wants to reward party faithful.

Seconded,
Commercial agriculture is the only way to go because of our growing popolutation and climate change.
Large scale industrial farming will still create sustainable jobs and encourage planting of improved and disease resistant seedlings.

CBN Will build an edifice free of charge in the North but loan to the south!!!

People of Ogun State rejoice and be wary of this greek gift

As this could be the key for Fulani herdsmen ruga to your state!!!

CBN Nigeria is controlled by the Fulani president and he hardly do anything good without an ulterior motive

So while you are rejoicing beware of these greek gift!!!

Why are you like this? You no dey try at all. If this were a PDP governor I can bet anything that you would have been more positive in your comments. You and your ilk need to grow up and appreciate good gestures without political coloration.
Go and check history, even with all the corruption, PDP was never this reckless!!!

When there is an outcry from people, they listen and make amends

There is respect for the people they govern!!!

I am not just saying this, I have every reason to say it!!!
