Engineer Seyi Makinde, Governor, Oyo State
In order to generate foreign exchange and develop agriculture, Oyo state government is already in talks with Botswana to export maize to the Southern African country.

This development was made known by the governor of the state, Engineer Seyi  Makinde. “We recognise that one of our areas of comparative advantage is agriculture. I am excited to tell you that we have taken steps to market our potentials. Our farmers will be happy to know that we are in talks with Botswana to export our maize to them. Our African neighbours have in the recent past imported from Central America, but they are ready to give us a chance,” the governor said.

Hmmm!!! Folks, let us say the truth and shame the devil. Many Nigerian non-oil products exporters have been defrauded of huge amount of money in the process of exporting agricultural commodities and solid minerals to foreign countries. Do you know why? They were not trained on export operations, management, documentations and the best methods of payment in export trade. This is terrible!!! Nigerians cannot continue to lose money to foreigners in the course of export business. Exporters, would you like to keep on being scammed? Why don’t you get a practical manual that explains the stages of export trade from processing and packaging of commodities to receipt of payment by the foreign buyers? It explains export operations, export management, export documentations and methods of payment in export trade? Yes, it is a contemporary step-by-step guide to export trade. It tells all the contemporary dynamics in export trade. To get it, click on this link:

According to the governor, his administration planned to make lives better for the farmers with good infrastructure. He said that during his campaigns, he  spoke to farmers in settlements at Ipapo, Ilora, Eruwa, Ogbomosho, Iresaadu, Ijaiye, Akufo and Lalupon who complained about inability to access credit facilities, poor rural infrastructure, especially feeder roads, difficulty in processing harvests, and lack of storage facilities.

“We listened to leaders and members of the Joint Farmers Association and agropreneurs talk about the challenges in the agriculture sector and proffer solutions which we will implement. Also, as we moved from one local government to the other, we listened to people discuss their concerns. I know that the people of Oyo State are not asking for too much. We spoke to the businessmen who are hurting under multiple taxations, who are pained because the ease of doing business is so bad that Oyo State ranks thirty-five out of the thirty-six states in Nigeria. More businesses are shutting down than are being opened,” he said.

Engineer Makinde made it clear that the focus of his government would be to implement policies that would give the people the tools they need to lift themselves out of grinding poverty and lack.

In the governor’s words, “We published our Road Map for Accelerated Development, 2019-2023, three months before the elections. We want you to hold us to our promises. In that document, we set forth our policies for tackling the infrastructure deficits, enabling an efficient health sector, improving security, youth empowerment, social inclusion and protection.

“Our policies reflect an understanding of the magnitude of problems Oyo State people face and our determination to use the instruments of focused leadership to tackle them. We are not promising miracles, we promise that results will happen if we work together, and that you will see the results, some in a matter of weeks.”
