Ogun State Government has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with a French Company, FAN MILK PLC, for the production of dairy foods in the country.
Speaking after the signing of the MoU in the presence of the French Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr. Jerome Pasquier at the Governor’s office, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, the State Governor Prince Dapo Abiodun, said agriculture remained a critical pillar of his Administration and the government would stop at nothing to actualize the dream of turning the State to the Nation’s food basket.
“Agriculture is one of our key sectors. We have the land, the people and traditional farmers. Today, we have done so much to become number one in cassava, eggs, and poultry in the country.
“We are also the largest producer of rice in the South West, besides being a major in kolanuts, cocoa and cotton. Our fish production has become a model in the continent.
“We see ourselves becoming the food basket of this nation and this tallies nicely with President Buhari’s ‘grow what you eat and eat what you grow agenda’ and we have keyed into this”, he noted.
