    The Ekiti State Government has announced the approval of a sum of N133,707,507.14 for the renovation of the Agricultural Farm Buildings (phase II) at Erinfun, along Federal Polytechnic road, Ado-Ekiti.

    The State Commissioner for Information, Rt. Hon. Taiwo Olatunbosun, disclosed that this decision was reached during the recent State Executive Council meeting held at the Executive Council Chamber, New Governor’s Office in Ado Ekiti on Tuesday, March 12th, 2024.

    Olatunbosun pointed out that the move is part of the efforts of the present administration of Governor Biodun Oyebanji to make farming attractive to youths and boost food production, while stressing that the only way out of the present economic doldrums in the country is to increase and improve productivity.

    The commissioner quoted the governor as having said that the project was capable of boosting employment, food production, and agribusiness in the state, saying the administration would continue to collaborate with institutions, development agencies, and private sector players.

    “We came on board on the mantra of shared prosperity and continuity, and agriculture is so key for us as a people. We have challenges in the country today because of a lack of productivity; if a people must prosper, they have to produce.

    “Productivity is key to prosperity, and the government cannot be at the forefront of that. The only thing the government can do is look for serious private investors and partner with them to ensure productivity,” the commissioner said.

    He also announced that the Governor has set up an eight-man committee on food security, headed by Hon. Commissioner for Agriculture and Food Security, Ebenezer Boluwade, with a mandate to come up with a strategy to mitigate the food crisis.
