As part of its effort to revolutionize agriculture, the Ebonyi state government has rolled out plans for the training of farmers on the use of modern mechanized agricultural equipment.
The state Commissioner for Agriculture, Barrister Uchenna Orji, who spoke to newsmen in Abakaliki, said that the government had engaged the services of some expatriates to train the farmers on the use of the mechanized agricultural equipment procured by the government.
At the news briefing which was attended by the state commissioner of Information and Orientation, Dr. Emmanuel Onwe, Orji said that five hectres of land has been acquired and cleared at the permanent site of the state University for the exercise.
According to him, registered farmers and farmers’ cooperative societies would benefit from the training.
The commissioner said that parboiling machines would soon be installed at the three modern rice mills owned by state government to get them fully utilized.
He announced the readiness of the government to enhance the ecstatic beauty of Abakaliki to make it a standard state capital to reckon, saying that the Executive Council had directed the State Ministry of Environment to ensure that illegal structures were removed. [myad]
