Presenting the keys of the Motor bicycles to the Director of Agriculture in the Municipality, the Municipal Chief Executive said, in 2017, the government launched agricultural intervention programmes such as Planting for Food and Job, Planting for Export and Rural Development, as well as Rearing for Food and Jobs. However, in order to execute these programme successfully, the motor bikes will go a long way to help extension officers reach out to the farmers. Thus the bikes will help solve transportation bottlenecks, and encourage effective and regular monitoring of activities of farmers.
He urged the Agriculture Extension Officers to use the motor cycles for the purpose meant for and also develop a maintenance culture in order to prolong the life span of the bikes.
Receiving the keys to the motor bicycles, the Municipal Director of Agriculture, Gabriel Adjargo noted that the motorbikes will go a long way to help them pursue any agenda as far as inspection of the farmers and their farm produce is concerned.
Mr. Gabriel Adjargo thanked the MCE and the entire assembly for the massive support they render to the Agriculture Directorate all this while and also promised to use the motor cycles judiciously.
