Ogun State Government has reassured farmers and other stakeholders in the agricultural sector of  its determination to take systemic, inclusive and strategic approach, towards ensuring food security, job creation and agricultural industrialisation.

 Governor Abiodun, represented by the Commissioner for Agriculture, Dr. Adeola Odedina assured that the State government would continue to collaborate with individuals and groups with genuine investment, to drive its development plans aimed at improving the well-being of the people.

The Governor said the various successes recorded and the awards received in the Agricultural sector leaves no one in doubt that the State was progressing in its revolutionary drive.

Earlier in his address, the President, UBEN, Romain Pakpo commended the government for linking their members to land inputs and markets, noting that it had encouraged more Egun youths to engage in various agricultural value-chain opportunities.

Papko expressed the farmers’ readiness to support the government in growing more food for the people and making the State a food basket of the nation, saying "the leadership style of our hard-working Governor has motivated us to propagate his ideals".
