Kogi Maps Out Land for Upcoming Farming Season

By George George Idowu

The Commissioner for Agriculture and Food Security in Kogi State, Hon. Timothy Ojomah, has announced that the state has designated three locations across its three senatorial districts for the cultivation of rice, maize, and cassava in the forthcoming farming season.

The announcement came during a two-day state-wide tour by the commissioner, who also noted that the allocated land spans over 10,000 hectares.

Hon. Ojomah stated that the state government has formulated plans to bolster farmers by subsidizing inputs and providing essential support.

He highlighted that this initiative aims not only to satisfy local food requirements but also to make a substantial contribution to wider food security measures.

In reaction to the government’s initiative, the Onu Ochaja (Omachi’Ata) of Ankpa LGA expressed his gratitude and readiness to cooperate for the program’s success.

He stressed the need for equitable distribution of inputs to farmers and called on the government to maintain these interventions to foster long-term agricultural growth.
