Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, on Saturday, flagged off the upgrade of the headquarters of the Oyo State Agriculture Development Programme (OYSADEP), Saki, which will now house the state’s Agribusiness development agency (OYSADA).
He stated that through the renovation and expansion of the existing facilities, the state was taking the step to reposition Oke Ogun as not just the food basket of Oyo State, but, also, as the seat of the state’s agribusiness drive, which will make the economic benefits of the engagement accrue to the zone.
Governor Makinde, who stated that the state was starting another journey in the fulfillment of another campaign promise to expand the economy through agribusiness and agriculture, said that having mapped out its strategies, it was time for implementation.
A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Makinde, Mr. Taiwo Adisa, indicated that the governor also visited the ongoing 200-bed Civid-19 isolation and treatment centre in Saki, where he stated that once COVID-19 pandemic is over, the facility would become useful to Saki and its environs.
