”I have also constituted a committee on Food Security in the state; the committee has submitted a report that is already receiving favourable attention.

”We have commenced plans to prepare, in phases, 300 hectares of land in every local government area and make it available for cultivation by our youths.

”We shall continue to support all farming activities and livestock husbandry with inputs and improved varieties of seeds”, he said.
