Ogun Acquires 4,500 Hectares Of Land For Cotton Production In Nigeria by OmoOgunOriginal(f): 4:24pm On Jun 08
In its determination to increase cotton production and revive the textile industry in Nigeria, Ogun State government has commenced the cultivation of cotton on 4,500 hectares of land.

This is even as the state entered into a partnership with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and Prime Anchor.

In a statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Ogun State Governor, Kunle Somorin, on Tuesday, the farmland located in Aworo-Pedepo in Yewa North Local Government Area of the state, was a follow up to the 10,000 hectares earlier provided to the Cotton Growers Association in the state.

Somorin explained that apart from the partnership with the CBN, which according to him will provide the needed fund to the growers, the state government has also entered into a synergy with Prime Anchor to link cotton producers to the industrial processes, especially the Joint Cotton Growers Association of Nigeria and Gateway Cotton processing Limited, in which Ogun owns 20% share.

Somorin added that the State Commissioner for Agriculture, Dr Adeola Odedina had led representative of the National Cotton Association Nigeria, who also doubles as the Regional Manager of Arewa Cotton, Adebayo Olayemi, the Permanent Secretary, Ogun State Ministry of Agriculture, Dr. Dotun Sorunke; Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Agriculture, Tolu Bankole; Sunday Adegoke of the Department of Tree Crops and others officials in the Ministry of Agriculture, to carry out an on-the-spot assessment of the 4,500 hectares of land.

He noted that with the new moves by the state government, no fewer than 14,000 direct and indirect jobs will be created in the cotton production sector.

Somorin disclosed that 18 new tractors have been made available and deployed by the Anchor to facilitate the project, adding “Ogun State Agricultural Development Programme (OGADEP) will also provide free extension services for the beneficiaries to ensure high productivity”.

“The 14,500-hectare farmland being cultivated for cotton production is to link farmers and youths who registered on the Ogun State Job Portal for job opportunities in cotton value chain”, he submitted in the statement.

What a wonderful development!

But let's pray some people don't trample over them when strolling with their cattle.

Good news. Each state should start utilising their resources to generate cash flow.

Hopefully the Fulani terrorist won't destroy it, and the Fulani army protect them while doing so.

Nice move. Mr governor. But you'd need to empower amotekun like ondo and oyo did, so you could achieve something reasonable on your investment. The fear of fulani killer herders is the beginning of wisdom. These guys don't mean well for our people.

Provide enough security for your people first, if you don't want to keep carrying Ghana must go bags to the forest to give those useless almanjiri breeds as ransom. Eyes are now open wide enough to see whom our enemies are. Enough said

Planting is good but what is the joy of planting for cows to feed on, the senior cows bleeping any female they come across and killing any male they see?

Nice one, but I think south west need to start real farming of Tomato, pepper, onions carrots and other foodstuffs that comes from the North.

Southerners can't be lazy and allow the North to use food as a weapon against us
