Agriculture: Bayelsa Ripe For Investment

Bayelsa State Governor, Senator Douye Diri, has visited the facilities of CSS Integrated Farms in Gora, Nasarrawa State, preparatory to the training of interested Bayelsans in different areas of farming.

The State Government recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with CSS Farms on the training programme.

Governor Diri, said he was excited at the training facilities in the farms and expressed the confidence that the agricultural future in Bayelsa State is very bright, insisting that massive investments in agriculture is the way to go for the Prosperity Government.

“This is a partnership that will work. I believe that between Bayelsa State and the CSS Farms, we are inseparable twins. We have a state that is sitting on the fish belt of Nigeria. We have a state that rice production can be huge. Plantain production already going up, we just need improved yields, same for cassava production”, he said.

Governor Diri, stated that there is huge agriculture potential and opportunities in the State and that “we invite our friends in the business community including our international friends to come invest here. For us, it is public-private partnership”.
