Ogun Partners Investors to Boost Agriculture

The Ogun State government has disclosed plans to partner with investors to boost agricultural activities in the state and create more investment opportunities to ensure food security, job creation and economic development.

The Commissioner for Agriculture in the state, Dr Adeola Odedina, disclosed this in Abeokuta at the weekend while welcoming investors and delegates from the French Embassy.

According to Odedina, the state government operates an open-door policy for investors with the mandate to support agriculture in various capacities and value-chain.

“We are ready to create an enabling environment in terms of access to land, favourable policies and advisory services.

“We already have collaboration with the French Embassy in the dairy farm sector, which is situated in Odeda and we are ready to welcome more of such,” Odedina said.

He added that the livestock sector in the state, particularly the cattle value chain, has a lot of potentials that are yet to be invested in, which would, in turn, benefit the youth and smallholder farmers.

On his part, the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Agriculture, Dr Dotun Shorunke, said the government was making efforts to improve the cattle value-chain in the state, noting that the state intends to become a major producer and not just a consumer in the sector.

He highlighted that one of the initiatives of the state government toward boosting agricultural productivity and commercialisation include the recently organised Federal Government supported Livestock-Productivity Resilience Support Project (L-PRES).
