“The hectares of fertile lands that line the 30kms of the road from Nkalagu to Aguamede can provide the sufficient amount of basic food resources for the entire State, ensuring food security and boosting the economy.

“I am committed to exploring the comparative advantage our state has in cultivating the following crops: Pineapples, cassava, cashews, palm trees, sweet potato, yams, pepper, some fruits (mango, papaya), and Super Grains: Sesame seeds, Breadfruit (Ukwa), Locust beans (Ogiri), Bambara nut (Ọkpa), Pigeon peas (Fio-fio) and Irvingia (Ọgbọnọ).

“My plan is to resuscitate the farming estates, create partnerships industrialization and resolutely address the security challenges that have persisted and affected farming activities.

“Attention will be paid to boosting the entire value chain of Agriculture from research and production to the supply chain, in order optimize the nutritional, local econ, omic and export value of our produce. Agriculture can easily make up 40% of our GDP and boost IGR significantly over the next four years.
