Agriculture, a Top Priority for my Administration – Governor Radda

Governor of Katsina State, Mallam Dikko Umaru Radda, has re-emphasized his administration’s determination to turn around the fortunes of farmers and the agricultural sector of the State.

According to him, agriculture is one of the cardinal areas his government will accord premium attention, with a view to accelerate Katsina’s economic growth and social development.

Radda disclosed this on Thursday when he hosted the Executive Director of Union Bank Plc, Mr. Jacob Ahise, and the TGI Group, at the Katsina State Governor’s Lodge in Asokoro, Abuja.

The TGI Group is a big agro conglomerate, and one of the largest agricultural commodities off-takers, in the country.

A statement by Ibrahim Kaula Mohammed, the Chief Press Secretary, CPS, to Mal. Radda, said the Governor, expressed delight over the separate visits of the Union Bank and the TGI Group delegations.

Earlier in his speech, Mr. Ahise, said that they visited the Governor to discuss and explore ways Union Bank can provide financial support that will help boost agriculture in the State.

On his part, Alh. Gumel, leader of the TGI Group, told Governor Radda that their mission was to brainstorm on how their firm can support Katsina State’s small-holder farmers, and agricultural growth.
