Ekiti State Governor Kayode Fayemi has disclosed that his administration had put in place machinery to contribute the state’s quota to national development by attracting $200 million investment in the agriculture sector.

He said the ventures, when fully operational, will provide jobs for more than 500,000 Ekiti people directly and indirectly, adding that these were parts of efforts to transform the state from being a civil servant economy to an agric-based industrialised economy.

Dr. Fayemi spoke at an interactive session with Ekiti youths with the theme: “Ekiti youths, let’s talk: Engaging youths in agribusiness”, at Adetiloye Hall, Ado-Ekiti.Fayemi, who presented a paper and sat through one of the sessions, also cut his birthday cake with young entrepreneurs. The event was equally attended by his wife, Erelu Bisi Fayemi and top government officials.

He said farm settlements and farm centres have been repositioned for massive harvest and processing, in order to feed the cargo airport upon completion so that Ekiti will become food basket in Nigeria and net exporter of semi-finished farm produce and products.
