FG Partners Ogun To Refurbish Odeda Water Pond, Donates Yam Barn

Federal Government in partnership with  Ogun State Government has refurbished an aquatic dam situated at Odeda Farm Institute, Eweje in Odeda Local Government Area, to boost fish production just as it built a yam tuber barn at the Institute for the storage of yam tubers to avert losses being incurred by local farmers.

Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Dr. Mohammed Mahmood Abubakar while the commissioning the projects recently, said that the renovated dam and the yam barn were intervention projects aimed at improving the socio-economic wellbeing of the State and restore the hope of farmers.

The minister who was represented by the State Director, FMARD, Engr.Ganiyu Oseni, noted that most crops are seasonal and there is dearth of storage facilities, hence the procurement of the yam barn and a way of cementing the existing relationship between Ogun State and Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.

The State Commissioner for Agriculture, Dr Adeola Odedina, represented by the Director of Agric Services, Mrs. Josephine Shodiya-Soetan, said the facilities being commissioned would go a long way at bringing back the lost glory of the Institute, promising adequate maintenance and judicious use of the facilities.

He however pleaded that FMARD should expedite completion of other proposed projects at the Institute.
