The state’s Commissioner for Agriculture, Mr. Oyewale Oyewunmi, said the state planned to collaborate with the private sector to expand and improve on its poultry, cassava, cashew, maize and sorghum production by providing land for farming and other agricultural purposes.

With the large arable land at its disposal, the government said investors in the private sector could procure the land to either expand the existing crops and poultry production or delve into other agricultural endeavours, with a promise to make the roads leading to the lands motorable.
