FG Commissions Agricultural Projects In 3 Delta Communities

The federal government has commissioned several agricultural projects in three towns in Delta state’s Oshimili South local government area in order to improve food security throughout the country.

The federal ministry of agriculture and rural development’s programs are targeted at increasing food production and producing prosperity among the state’s rural residents.

Oko-Amakom, Umuyagbo, and Asaba, all in Delta state’s Oshimili South LGA, are among the beneficiaries.

Dr. Mamood Abubakar, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, urged communities to take ownership of the initiatives in order to enjoy long-term benefits.

He said that the project was part of the government’s effort to reduce urban migration by creating jobs in rural areas through aquaculture, cassava processing gear, and a rural road network.

Mr Michael Brooks, the ministry’s zonal director for the South/South zone, represented Abubakar, who said the projects had been finished and turned over to the communities.

The programs, according to him, were created to strengthen rural people in areas where they have a competitive edge.

He mentioned 60 concrete pond clusters for graduate youths and women at Oko-Amakom, a garri cottage processing mill in Asaba, and a one-kilometre asphalt Umuyagbo road in Illah, all in the Oshimili North LGA.

Mr. John Onovroke, the State Director, complimented the teenagers for their cooperation while the projects were being built and warned them to avoid violence.

He advised youths to take advantage of the federal government’s many agricultural measures to improve food security, wealth, and job creation.
