A frontline Governorship contestant in Anambra State, Dr. Godwin Maduka, has said that farmers in the state would become millionaires and billionaires under his government through an aggressive farming model, where modern tools and business models would drive the hitherto subsistent system to the background.

Unveiling his programme in agriculture, the US-based medical practitioner, said he would dedicate more time to facilitating prompt relief strategies in the science and art of cultivating plants and livestock, adding that new farm and agricultural facilities would be introduced for both public and private investment.

Under the arrangement, youths and elders would be encouraged by empowering them to maximise their farming and agricultural skills with Loans or Take-Off grants, he said, adding that the system would also be open to Youth Corps members exercising their mandatory service in Anambra State.

His words: “I will utilise expanse of land in every local government, use government funds to acquire necessary mechanised agricultural tools like tractors, combine harvesters and other farm tools and build silos near farms.

“Then the farms will be under the authority of Anambra State Ministry of Agriculture thereby strengthening it and will also be managed by the respective local government chairmen.

"This initiative will not only reduce hunger in Anambra State but will also boost our economy and increase our Internal Generated Revenue (IGR).

“We will also go into partnership with companies to establish ‘Food Stuff Processing Plants’ in the respective Local Government Areas. This will not only help us to process agricultural products and create revenue for Anambra State but will also enable farmers reduce their loses through damages and decay of their products before they get to the final consumers.”
