The Senator representing Okigwe Zone in the Nigerian Senate, Hon. Frank Ibezim has distributed improved seedlings and fertilizers to farmers in his district.
According to the Senator known for his works, he said this move is in furtherance of his vision to improve the economy of Okigwe zone.
He said “Our commitment to improve the economy of Okigwe zone has remained unwavering.
As we face the year’s farming period, we have successfully distributed seedlings to over 250 farmers in all the six local governments of Imo North district after giving a workshop program on how to achieve maximum agricultural yields, this we carried out at the National Open University campus, Ehime Mbano LGA.
We didn’t just stop there, we also went ahead to distribute bags of fertilizers to farmers in our zone to assist in enhancing productivity of their agricultural proceeds.
It’s my hope and prayer that these new steps targeted at increasing the availability of agricultural products and food in our zone achieve maximum impact.” – Senator Frank Ibezim KSC
