CSOs task corporate bodies to complement govt’s efforts in agric
Civil Society Organisations in Ondo State have urged private organisations to complement the efforts of the government in the agricultural sector.
The representative of the group, Mr Franklin Oloniju, said this in Akure during a stakeholders’ dialogue to address the challenges facing smallholder women farmers in the state.
Oloniju explained it was a five-year public sector accountability programme, tagged: Partnership to Engage, Reform and Learn (PERL), funded by the United Kingdom, Department for International Development (DFID).
According to him, “The government of Ondo State has recorded positive strides in its contribution to growth in the agricultural sector resulting in meaningful economic development for all citizens.”
Due to financial constraints by the government, Oloniju, who is the CEO of Life and Peace Development Organisation (LAPDO), urged the government to devise new methods of agricultural financing.
