Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi has come out to say that FG supporting Ekiti farmers will aid food security in Nigeria.

He recently revealed this in Ado Ekiti while taking delivery of the items from NALDA Coordinator in the state.

According to him, the tractors, farm implements, agro-chemicals and other farm supplements that the state received from the Federal Government will definitely help Buhari’s administration achieve its aim when it comes to food security in the nation.

He added that the gesture from FG is a demonstration of commitment to supporting farmers across the country.

His words, “I have saddled the Commissioner for Agriculture and Food Security, Dr Olabode Adetoyi and Director General, Office of Transformation, Strategy and Delivery, Prof Bolaji Aluko, to retrieve unserviceable tractors dotted across the state for fixing in other to assist farmers during this planting season.”

“The pesticides, the herbicides, the fertilizers that accompany the tractors that have come is clearly a demonstration of the passion of Buhari’s administration to agriculture. NALDA is supporting farmers across the length and breadth of the country to grow crops and to receive support from government and synergizing that with what our ministry of Agriculture and Food Security is doing can only be better for farmers and this is a major pillar of this administration.”

“Agriculture and rural development is dear to us and these tractors would go along way in clearing land, to develop the land and to ensure that the lands are better managed.”

“Ultimately, we don’t run the risk of food insecurity in the state which is number one, yes we do have farmers-herders clashes, even at that, the Commissioner and his team has been working with the security agencies to reduce the level of problem that we are encountering in that area.”
