We cannot see the good side of a person and fail to acknowledge him. If not for anything, but for the sake of God almighty who made it possible. This I sincerely want to say for the step taken by the Enugu State governor towards improving the Agricultural status in Enugu State.
It was on Wednesday being the 2nd day of September 2020, at michael okpara square. The Enugu State Governor Rt. Hon. IFEANYI Lawrence Ugwuanyi, through the Enugu State ministry of Agriculture and the ministry of local government affairs distributed 34 Units of Hand Tractors known as farm utility vehicle (FUV) to the 17 LG council in Enugu State.
Based on the capacity of the machine, it was observed that this machines has the capacity to power 16 farm implements like plough, ridger, water sprinkler, bucket,etc.
I must say that this caught my attention and I cannot hide the truth when I see it. The Governor and his team really tried and I implore them to make sure that every council chairman work according to the vision about Agricultural development in Rural areas.
Any chairman who fails to use it and help farmers in his LG, please I advise you to use your power as the governor and collect it back.
No chairman should make this machine a family machine or personal project. This is for your LG. Use it and help farmers in your LG. Improve Agricultural products in your LG. If you try to monopolize this machine, then God will visit you with his Anger.
Again I expect the ministry to always be supervising all this things to see how far they have gone in using it to improve the lives of farmers in there LG.
How does your LG chairman help farmers in your Community?
Do they give them tractors for big farm lands?
What have your LG chairman done in improving Agricultural development in your community?
Let’s discuss Agriculture in our LGs…
