” Okoduwa inspects farm

By Noble Sunday

Some Libya Returnees under the aegis of Association of Edo Libya Returnee Farmers have appealed to well meaning Nigerians including government and religious bodies to support their farming projects.

Upon arrival, the returnees, about 25, embarked on cash crop farming at a land spanning over 12 hectares in Urighon Village, Uhunmwode Local Government Area.

The leader of the returnees, Festus Okosun said embarking on farming was a clear departure from what other returnees are doing.

Okunsun said they have decided to get on serious venture in Nigeria rather than planning to return to Europe for greener pastures or look for white collar jobs.

He attributed the success they have made so far to the contributions of Pastor T.B Joshua, the Oba of Benin, Omo N’Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Ewuare 11 through their separate supports, as well as the Orakue of Benin, Chief Osabuohien Omokaro for providing them with the land under a gentleman agreement.

“We want to contribute our quota to the society through the development of agriculture. We want it in a wide scale in such a way we could provide food in the table of Nigerians. But we don’t have the financial well withal to expand the farm, Okosun stated.

Another returnee, Omokaro Aigbe who returned earlier in the year appealed for produce processing machines, fertilizers and other materials that could enhance their produce.

He lamented that the country was fast losing its productive young people to migration to Europe and political thuggery, while dumping agriculture.

Aigbe who obtained a diploma from College of Agriculture, Iguoriakhi urged relevant authorities to support them and become employers of labour.

Also part of the team, Bridget Obarisiuwa and Mercy Aimienoho corroborated the views of Okosun and Aigbe.

While describing farming as life sustaining said cultivation of crops and other activities in the farm keep them busy and they are happy doing it.

The returnees started with cultivation of cassava and existing palm trees planted by the landowner, Chief Omokaro.

The Senior Special Assistant to Governor Godwin Obaseki on Anti Human Trafficking Issues, Solomon Okoduwa said he was amazed by what the youths are doing.

“I have seen what they’re doing. I appreciate it. With this, the youths have written their names on gold. I will go back to inform the governor and see how the government can also support them. Obviously, they need support. These set of returnees have shown that they could make it here in Edo State, Nigeria.” Okoduwa noted.

The youths are 21 including six girls.
