    Delta Govt. laments as famer loses over N70m rice farm to flood 

    Delta Govt. laments as famer loses over N70m rice farm to flood    Delta Delta Commissioner for Agriculture and Natural Resources, Dr Godfrey Enita, on Thursday expressed concern over the extent of damage wrought by flood on rice farm in the state.

    The commissioner spoke with newsmen after inspecting a 100 hectares rice farm taken over by flood at the Benin-Owena River Basin Authority in Ngegwu, Ajaji – Illah, Oshimili North Local Government Area of the state.

    According to Enita, the damage to the rice farm is colossal, huge and massive.

    “In fact, when the report got to me, I did not know that it was of this magnitude.

    “When I first saw the video, most part of the farm was above the water but as you can see, more than 70 per cent of the entire rice farm land is under water.

    “That tells you how massive the loss but I must commend the farmer, he is a dogged person because of his commitment.

    “These are people the government  should encourage, particularly for someone who had invest much and only to experience this huge loss due to flooding.

    ”Enita gave assurance that the state government would liaise with appropriate authorities to do what would be necessary to support the farmer to remain in business. 

    He noted that the magnitude of damage was enough to  discourage the farmer if nothing was done to keep him afloat.

    The commissioner said that the issues on how to secure the programme on food security would remain a national discuss.

    He said that the issues of flooding had occupied the centre stage if the nation must sustain the policy on food security.

    According to him, we are aware that dams will be opened and flooding will come but why something tangible has not been done to stem it over the years is what we cannot understand.

    The commissioner said that as state government,  there was nothing much that could be done to stop the flooding.

    “But we will continue to support  our farmers in all ways possible to give them  hope and encourage them to stay in their businesses,” Enita said.

    On his part, the Managing Director, Merrybell Rice Farm, Mr Felix Okonti, who lost 50 hectares (about 250 metric tonnes of rice) farm to the flood, said that his total loss was about N72 million.

    According to Okonti, the total hectarage under the river basin land development  is 100 hectares which was leased to the Delta State Government Ministry of Agriculture Assisted Rice production.

    “Out of this, I own 50 hectares, and because we are mindful that there will be flood, we first planed planting faru 44, but due to delay in inputs, we opted for flood resistant variety, called Buga rice variety from Jos which we planted in this field.

    “We did not envisage that the height of flood will be this high, normally, this variety is supposed to withstand the flood but this is not the situation.

    “As you can see, it has covered all the plants and going by the average of five to seven tonnes of rice per hectare, the gravity of loss is colossal.

    “It takes about 120 days (three months) for this variety to mature, and these have reached 72 days when the flood came and as you can see, there is nothing to salvage from the farm.

    Okonti, who encouraged himself said that in spite of the loss he would venture into dry season rice farming from November.

    “According to him, the farm is  insured and give the current market price, the total loss is put at about N72 million.

    He, however, advised the Federal Government, as the manager of river basins and inland waterways, to construct the needed dams along the River Basin to absorb the waters that cause havoc along the states in the area.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the commissioner in company of the Permanent Secretary, Mr Ben Agamah, Mr Okonti among others paddled on a canoe through the flooded rice farm to a certain the extent of damage.

    Gov. Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta has assured that the multi-billion naira Ogheye floating market  project in  Ogheye ,Warri North Local Government Area of the state, would be ready in September.

    Okowa gave the assurance while swearing-in five new commissioners in Asaba on Tuesday.

    He also said that the Koka Bridge Flyover and Interchange, Asaba Leisure Park and Film Village; and Warri Storm Water Drainage would be delivered before the end of his administration.

    Okowa  named  the new commissioners as :Dr Kingsley Ashibogwu – Higher Education; Dr Darlington Ijeh – Human and Community Development; Dr Godfrey Enita – Agriculture; Chief Anthony Ofoni – Project Monitoring and Audit and Mrs Nkechi Enumah-Chukwura – Girl-Child Entrepreneurship Development-While congratulating the appointees , he urged them to justify the confidence reposed in them, especially now that the administration had entered the last lap of its term.

    ”With less than a year to the terminal date of this administration, every  minute counts as we strive to finish strong.

    “This administration’s novel entrepreneurship programmes have become the reference point for youth development in the country, while our urban centres continue to experience growth and renewal through massive investments in roads and bridges.

    “For instance, Asaba, the capital city, is becoming a hub for conferences, resulting in a boost in the hospitality industry.

    ” The Koka Bridge Flyover and Interchange, Asaba Leisure Park and Film Village; and Warri Storm Water Drainage, are some of the major projects we hope to deliver before this administration winds up,” he said.

    The governor  said the Ogheye floating market,when delivered in September,would impact on lives in the riverine areas.

    “It is my hope that people from across the state will witness the inauguration of this project because it is a major project in which we are very proud of.

    Okowa urged the new commissioners to remain focused and constantly be in tune with the policy direction of the administration to make quick success of their work.

    He said that as the electioneering season was  gathering  momentum, it was expected that political opportunists and detractors would employ every means possible to distract the people.

    “But you must remain focused and unwavering in the noble task of building a stronger Delta and standing on the tripod of Prosperity, Peace and Progress.

    “It is going to take all of us thinking together, planning together, and working together to actualise this mandate.

    “You must promote inclusion and diversity in your ministry.

    In your utterances and actions.

    It is important that you develop a work environment devoid of mutual suspicion, distrust, exclusion and resentment.

    “This administration is passionate in the belief that the stability, peaceful co-existence and prosperity of the state depends on our ability to run an all-inclusive government,” he said.

    The governor urged the commissioners to lead by example, saying, ” always bear in mind that as a leader, people don’t do what you tell them but what they see you do.

    I trust that you will be committed to leading by example as you begin your tenures today.

    “For that to happen, you must model excellence in your work ethic, character and leadership style.

    You must commit to excellence in service delivery even if at great personal expense.

    “Excellence also means to be purpose-driven, process-driven and people-driven,” the governor said.

    Enita, responding on behalf of the  commissioners, thanked Okowa  for finding them worthy to serve the people of the state.

    He assured that they would deliver their services conscientiously in line with the “Stronger Delta” agenda.
