Obiano Inspects Ogbaru Irrigation Project, As He Continues To Deliver On Campaign Promises (PHOTOS)

In what is seen as a practical demonstration of his administration’s determination to fulfill his campaign promise of revolutionising agriculture in Anambra State through increased output in food production, self-sufficiency,  wealth creation and job opportunities, Gov. Obiano was in Ogbaru Tuesday to inspect the Ogbaru Irrigation Project, being constructed through FADAMA 111 AF.

Seeing the extent of the progress made, the working governor enjoined the project coordinator to ensure that the huge investment of the government in the project should reflect positively on the faces of farmers as his administrative objective of realizing and ensuring food security in the state is achieved.

Already, this irrigation project in Ogbaru has over 700 farmers and when completed will provide jobs for over 2000 persons.

You may recall that when Obiano Administration took over the leadership, the state was producing only 80,000 metric tonnes of rice per annum. But ever since, the State has tripled its production volume. From a yield of 80,000 metric tonnes to 322,000 metric tons per annum, which surpassed the annual consumption figure of 320,000 metric tons in the state.

With the achievement and more, the state government hopes to cater for the agricultural needs of the people, create jobs for the teeming youths and generate more revenue for the state.
