Group urges Fayose to turn attention to Agric Sector


A Socio Cultural Association in Ekiti State, The Achievers Group has urged the state Governor, Ayodele Fayose to direct his government attention to the Agricultural sector in order to boost food production and create job opportunities for the teaming unemployed youths in state.
“It is not acceptable that our people should complain of hunger when Ekiti State is capable of providing enough food to feed the whole nation’’ it stressed.
The group in a statement jointly signed by its president, Mr. Femi Jegede and the Publicity Secretary, Raphael Wumi Adeyanju, and made available to newsmen in Ado-Ekiti, stated that the state government can replicate the success it recorded in the education sector, if it can devote same time and energy it gave to the agriculture.
It noted that all the achievements recorded by the Fayose led
administration in the last two years, despite all forms of distractions from different quarters, are made possible because the government was fully prepared to face all forms of challenges.
“We are confident that Governor Fayose can use agriculture as a tool for tackling the recent food crisis facing our nation, using Ekiti State as a starting point. The government can also use this as an opportunity to engage our youths on farms and keep them away from crimes’’.
Jegede and Adeyanju praised the state Government for rewarding some outstanding teachers in the public schools with car and cash gifts as part of activities commemorating the 2016 World Teachers Day.
They also commended governor Fayose for giving out cash incentive to all the teachers in the state, to celebrate the results recently released by the National Examination Council, (NECO) in which the state came first.
This gesture they claim is capable of encouraging teachers to give out their best.
