According to him, the collaboration with members of the association and the state government has become necessary to attain food security, stressing that the collaboration would not only improve and increase food production especially rice, but also bring about employment opportunities, reduce importation, and increase revenue generation for the state.

Earlier, the Board of Trustee Chairman, Dr. Engr. Olaitan Balogun said that the visit was to seek the state government’s support to help their members grow rice in the state.

He added: “Ministries of Water Resources and Agriculture are critical for the growth of farm produce especially rice as water is essential for its growth.”

Elder Kolo therefore appealed to the state government to help empower their members financially to increase food production especially rice to reduce dependence on foreign importation to also help increase revenue generation.
