Mimiko urges government to give attention to global cocoa political economy
Former Governor Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo State has urged the government to pay attention to the global cocoa political economy to optimize cocoa production.
Mimiko stated this yesterday in Ibadan at the first Cocoa Farmers’ Day celebration organised by Cocoa Farmers’ Association of Nigeria (CFAN) at the International Conference Centre, University of Ibadan (UI).
Mimiko said that farmers must be assisted to increase productivity through improved seedlings and modern technological techniques.
President of the association, Adeola Adegoke, who lamented the low level of development in cocoa production, urged a robust co-ordination among value-chain operators in the sub-sector.
He, therefore, urged improved welfare for cocoa farmers to move the sub-sector forward.
