0

Rauf Aregbesola, Governor of State of Osun has said the roll out of debit cards to farmers in his state is a practical demonstration of his administration commitment to empower them with adequate finances to boost food production in the region.

The Governor, who described the initiative as “agriculture based prosperity”, hopes to ensure farmers have direct and easy access to farming inputs such as seedlings, pesticides and fertilizers.

“We came up with the aid scheme in order to correct all the anomalies that are inherent in the extant system of agricultural input distribution, while the Credit Support Programme is meant to boost the capacity of stakeholders to play their roles properly towards the development and modernization of agriculture”, according to Aregbesola.

“We are convinced that there is immense potential in agriculture for job creation, wealth generation, food security and poverty eradication”, he added.
