Seyi Makinde, governor of Oyo State has ordered the return of the headquarters of the Oyo State Agricultural Development Programme, OYSADEP, to Saki, promising that the administration will restructure the system and fully strengthen it for efficient and effective performance of its responsibilities.
The agency, OYOINSIGHT.COM recalls, was initially headquartered in Saki before it was moved to Ibadan for ‘administrative convenience’ by Makinde’s predecessor.
Makinde, who made this known in a 16-page speech while presenting a N208 billion 2020 budget estimates to the State House of Assembly for approval, said that 4.43 per cent has been allocated to agriculture.
Makinde further said that in line with his administration’s four service point agenda, he noted that the government remained committed to its determination to use agriculture to drive the state’s economy.
He also informed the gathering that the legal controversy over the 10,000 metric tons capacity silo at Awe had been settled out of court, with the contractor already back to site with an agreement to deliver the project in 10 months.
Makinde noted that the administration has begun the implementation of policies that would  transform farming activities, increase production and improve the quality of food crops, livestock export and industrial crops through the application of modern technology, noting that the ongoing effort to upgrade two of the nine Farm Settlements in Eruwa and Akufo into Farm Estates remained on track.
