It is no doubt that the main stay of our economy in Imo, outside of Federal Allocations is Agriculture and other sources of Internally Generated Revenue (IGR), hence my interest and our Government's commitment in ensuring and encouraging increased agricultural production, irrespective of the Covid19 Pandemic.
This initiative is geared towards food security for local consumption and also for export purposes. We are also laying emphasis on Agro-based Projects, as a catalyst to employment generation.
My visit is to enhance the cordial work relationship between us (the Imo State Government) and Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, its Departments & Agencies.
We need to provide the highly required avenue for the Imo State Government as well as the private Sector players in agriculture, food Industry and others to project their products, services and all we do via facilitating Imo State's inclusion in the National and International activities of the Ministry.
I also sought visible inclusions of Imo State in Agric Funds and Loans (Non Interest) to Small and Medium Scale Farmers in the State, including mechanised farm equipment, storage facilities, intervention projects and programs for the rural areas in Imo State.
I stated our Government's commitment to the Honourable Minister, to promote an egalitarian society for all Imo people at home and in the Diaspora.
We are rekindling hope, and restoring the self confidence that we are known for. We are promoting equal opportunities for our women and support for vulnerable persons. So, every intervention, every support, every assistance from the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development is vital for us in Imo.
