Ikpeazu To Establish Agro Based Cottage Industries In 17 LGAs Of Abia by Metrix147: 6:47pm On Jan 07
Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu says he will establish Agro based Cottage Industries in all the 17 LGAs in the State commencing with 7 pilot Local Government Areas.

According to the Governor, his administration is committed to reduce rural-urban drift in the State and improve the economy as agriculture has been known to provide jobs and raw materials for industries.

The Governor spoke while receiving in audience a delegation of the World Bank Funded Agro Processing Productivity Enhancement & Livelihood Improvement Support (APPEALS).

The team was led by National Procurement Specialist, Engr. Abdulgafar Kayode.

According to the Governor, machines for the 7 pilot LGAs procured from the TinyTech Corporation of India have already arrived the State.

In a statement issued on Thursday by his Chief Press Secretary, Onyebuchi Ememanka made available to ABN TV, Ikpeazu said the State Government is willing and prepared to enter into productive partnerships with development partners, especially in the area of Agriculture for the good of Abians.

He said the State would do everything within its powers including payment of second tranche of counterpart fund to ensure the project succeeds in Abia.

The Governor maintained that agriculture remains the key for sustainable development.

The statement read in part, "Governor Ikpeazu equally disclosed that the State Government has already established Abia State Marketing and Quality Control Agency that ensures standardization of agricultural products produced in the State.

"Also speaking, the Commissioner for Agriculture, Prof. Ikechi Mgboji informed that the State is ready for the project. He said, they have shown the team the office provided for it and vehicles made available for it as well as taken them to poultry cluster, farm settlements among others. He expressed hope that with the level of preparedness, Abia State would be qualified for the project.

"Earlier in his speech, the leader of the delegation and National Procurement Specialist, Agro Processing Productivity Enhancement & Livelihood Improvement Support (APPELIS) project , Engr. Abdulgafar Kayode said the team was in the State to ascertain the readiness of the State in participating in the special agricultural project and to finalize discussions in that regard.

"He appreciated the State Governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu for supporting the project in the State and for being the first to pay counterpart fund for the project. He said the team is happy with what the Governor is doing, adding that since the program is equally in line with the Governor's policy thrust, he would authorize thr payment of the second tranche of the Counterpart Fund."

Why create more debts. Why setting up more institutions with an ever increasing debt profile. First do the needful and stop playing to the gallery Ikpeazu

Ikpeazu finish one thing first before you pickup another. Much of the state workers are yet to be paid for as long as 30 months and you're gallivanting with more projects heaping debts upon debts. Young man, pay your workers and stop ruining the livelihood of your people

This guy is owing pensioners 30 months pension arears and workers over 20 months salary. Civil service has almost collapsed in the state, health workers are owed 18 months salaries abandoning state health centres putting so much pressure on Federal Medical Centre Umuahia, he ran to Abuja during the lockdown to treat himself of Covid19 in a popular clinic in Abuja and possibly infected the owner of the clinic who died of Covid19 after treating him and the news made FP here.
Ikpeazu is a source of shame to Igbos. Many people insinuate that he won elections which is not true, because Buhari refused electronic voting he applied violence, ballot stuffing and using security agents and thugs to drive away voters similar to what we witnessed in Kogi state.
This man cannot even boast of a single fully completed and commissioned project in several years angry

Another Avenue created to release funds and then not complete such projects. We need accountability, but how can you get that when even the judges’ verdicts go to the highest bidder.

You’re not wrong. Starting a project is one of the avenues they siphon money. That’s why there’s countless uncompleted projects in Nigeria.

Do u know how many airports surrounding Abia less than 45mins drive to Aba (owerri,uyo, Calabar and pH airport, yet you still want Abia to build another airport,so the airport will just end up like osun airport)
