Otti calls on communities and LGAs to support the government’s agricultural strategy

Posted by

In order to achieve food sufficiency in Abia, Local Government Areas and communities within the state have been tasked by Abia State Governor Alex Otti to embrace the new Abia agenda on agriculture.

At the recent Isuikwuato LGA headquarters, Otti delivered the keynote address for the launch of the Isuikwuato Agriculture Revolution Program (ISAREP) and the 2024 Isuikwuato Planting Season.

According to him, the 2024 Isuikwuato Planting Season’s inauguration and kickoff present a fantastic chance to increase commercial support for agriculture.

The governor declared that his administration’s goal is to change the state and reestablish its pride in the comity of states through the person of Cliff Agbaeze, Special Adviser on Agriculture.

He also emphasized that agriculture is a key component of his reform plan and that he has made enormous progress in almost every area to show his commitment to creating a new Abia.

He took the opportunity to express his gratitude to Chief Ray Nkemdirim and his team of the Isuikwuato Consultative Forum for their inspiring ideas that gave rise to the program. He also pledged his full support to their efforts to diversify their LGA’s economy by increasing investment in agriculture.

“I urge you to keep it up as I also urge other communities and LGAs to emulate this noble gesture,” stated Governor Otti. The timing of this program, which comes during this national food crisis and emergency, couldn’t have been more fortunate or more bold!

“In addition, I think that this flag-off and inauguration will significantly alter how agriculture is conducted in Nigeria overall, in Abia State specifically, and in Isuikwuato in particular.

“The Abia State government firmly believes in the potential of our people; our task is to unleash that potential.” Abia State needs to feed itself, and I venture to claim that it can feed Nigeria if it realizes all of its agricultural potential.
