Embrace Agriculture for Economic Growth – From Ondo Government to Youths and Retirees


Ondo State Governor, Mr. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, has called on youths, veterans, retired senior civil servants and businessmen to take up agriculture to help the country’s economy.

Akeredolu gave the advice at Ondo State Cocoa Day as part of the third edition of the Ondo State Agricultural Show and Food Fair held in Akure.

The event, organized by the Ondo State Agricultural Products Association (OSACA), held the theme: “Agricultural products: a fundamental instrument for economic and industrial revolution.”

The governor, who was represented by Agriculture and Forestry Secretary Olayat Aribo, advised retirees to engage in agriculture so that they are not left solely to tenant farming.

“I would like to call on all stakeholders in the agricultural subsector, especially farmers and their organizations, to strive for increased production to feed the agro-industry for optimal production.

“The state government shall continue to ensure and enforce quality control of agricultural products to ensure that Ondo State agricultural products are accepted in the international market.”
