Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State said his administration would continue to resuscitate the state’s dying industries and create value for the people from those assets.

The governor said it was a statement issued Wednesday in Ibadan by Mr. Taiwo Adisa, his chief press secretary.

According to the statement, Makinde made this promise during the inauguration of the renovated Garri processing plant in Ilaju, in the Ido local government area in the state.

“We are here today to commission the Garri processing plant in Ilaju.

“When we came to inspect this factory, they told me that it could process a trailer of cassava a day, and the only thing that came to my mind was the employment we could generate by handing it over. on rails.

“So when members of this cooperative society came to meet with me, I told them that we would get the factory back on track and to the glory of God, it happened,” he said.

The governor took the opportunity to announce a start-up grant of 7.5 million naira for the cooperative society that manages the factory.

The statement further stated that Mr. Adeniyi Adebisi, Commissioner for Trade, Industry, Investment and Cooperatives, appreciated the governor for his support and political guidance.

The support and push, he said, is aimed at rejuvenating the state’s economy by using agriculture as a tool.

Adebisi said the governor is laying a solid foundation that will stand the test of time for the state. (NAA)
