Seyi Makinde set to upgrade one of the two farm settlement into farm estates ( pictures )


Today, we visited the "Akufo Farm Settlement", one of the two farm settlements to be upgraded into farm estates. Right now, there are private investors there producing 500 tonnes of tomatoes per week. Even at that, there is a large gap between this production and what we need locally.

As one of the designated beneficiaries of the "Africa Development Bank agro-processing zone project", Oyo State will be working with these farmers and others to ramp up local production and then look into processing. I'm super excited about the possibilities to boost our economy.
