Onukwuba added that governor Willie Obiano decided to go a step or two further beyond providing an enabling environment for agriculture because of the State’s poor position in food production. “In 2014, our agricultural production was very low. His Excellency saw that the capacity of the actors in the sector was very limited. We made available tractors to develop more areas of cultivation. The Ministry went into inputs processing to reduce production cost of farmers. We imparted improved methods and techniques to farmers. And the Government signed an MOU with some big scale farms.
