Corporate farmers’ group in Osun has commended Gov. Ademola Adeleke for providing inputs for agriculture sector to thrive in the state.

This is contained in a statement by the leader of the group, Mr Dauda Bamigbade, on Wednesday in Osogbo.

Bamigbade described the intervention of the governor as a timely support for the agricultural sector ahead of the rainy season.

“We want to sincerely appreciate Gov. Ademola Nurudeen Jackson Adeleke of Osun State for pushing to fulfill most of his electoral promises in a short while.

“Among the promises is clearing of backlog of half salaries arrears, payment of gratuity arrears, infrastructural development, health sector development, affordable schools and well equipped, agricultural development and incentives for farmers.

“We feel so blessed to witness this period in our darling state. Every sector has been touched within 100 days in office.

“This is a pleasant surprise because many don’t believe it can be done,” he said.

Bamigbade said that they were excited when they read in the newspaper that the governor had approved inputs subsidy for farmers.

“We were so thrilled because this is our area of concern which needs an emergency approach. Most farming inputs are now on the high side.

“This inflation rate keep many farmers out of business because of the increase in cost of production, with huge effect on prices of commodities,” he said.

 

Bamigbade, however, called on the governor to ensure proper monitoring of the implementation process, to ensure that the subsidised inputs got to farmers.
