(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – As part of efforts by his administration to improve transportation and agriculture in Ekiti State, Governor Kayode Fayemi has announced that plans have been concluded to partner with a Brazilian organization, Africa-Brazil Inter Africa-Brazil International Forum, in agribusiness, monorail and Bus Rapid Transit (BRT).
The governor, who disclosed this when he met with officials of the organisation in his office in Ado-Ekiti, said his government would gladly partner with the organisation to actualise some of his laudable programmes, particularly in agriculture and transportation.
Governor Fayemi pointed out that Brazil had taken some giant strides in agriculture, having the most successful agricultural research organisations in the world, and hence the interest of Ekiti to tap from their wealth of experience, particularly in the areas of research and technology.
Fayemi said that Ekiti and Brazil had a lot in common, including climate and the types of crops available in the two zones, adding that the state’s Investment and Development Promotion Agency would drive the partnership alongside the Ministry of Arts and Culture.
PROJECTED IMPACT: The collaboration will hopefully impact positively on the lives of the people of Ekiti State as the state taps into Brazil’s vast experience and successes in Agriculture and hopefully replicate those successes at home. It also spells the onset of an exciting relationship on both the agricultural and cultural sides.
