The need for Farmers to operate independently on a separate ministry in Akwa Ibom state has once again been appealed for.
The state Chairman of Nigeria Good Governance Group NGGG Comrade Anietie Ekpenyong made this demand last week while filling questions from newsmen in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state capital.
Comrade Ekpeyong urged His Excellency the governor to employ young people worthy of taking leadership into the state executive council hence ministry of Agriculture should be carved out from the ministry of women Affairs to encourage the young Farmers entrepreneur to bubble up in their farm products and services.
He acknowledges the pre-eminence decision of the governor towards encouraging agriculture in the state to offer young people the privileged to serve as Farmers and for such reasons, there is need for the separation of the ministry of Agriculture from women affairs.
Comrade Ekpeyong stated that since the executive council will soon be rejigged with more competent hands, there is need for the government to separate Ministry of Agriculture from the Women Affairs ministry to allow the two vibrant ministries to work effectively for the development of the state.
The Leader of the Anti-Corruption and Good Governance advocacy Group, Comrade Anietie Ekpeyong, poured encomiums on the accountability leadership prowess of the executive Governor for finding the youthful class worthy and responsible enough to take up challenging leadership roles in the state Executive Council.
The NGGG Akwa Ibom State equally thanked Governor Emmanuel for following the ethics of good governance in establishing social structures that reinforce democratic values, protect a liberal democratic order that is devoid of ethnic bigotry, and sectionalism.
The group hinted that the increase in the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of the state as witnessed recently, shows great indices of economic growth and development through innovative partnerships with private and external investors via Foreign Direct Investment (FDI).
It is believed that this has aided in the total Industrial and agricultural revolution currently taking place in the state, with a conscious effort by the Udom’s led exco to achieve the sustainable development goals within the shortest possible time frame.
