Akure, Ondo.

The senator representing Ondo Central Senatorial District, Sen. Adeniyi Adegbonmire, has distributed fertiliser bags to farmers in the district as part of efforts to enhance agricultural productivity and contribute to Nigeria’s food sufficiency,

The beneficiaries were drawn from the six local government areas  consisting of the senatorial district: Akure South, Akure North, Ondo West, Ondo East, Idanre, and Ifedore local government areas.

Speaking at the distribution of the fertiliser on Friday in Akure, Adegbonmire said the  gesture was in tandem with the initiative of President Bola  Tinubu’s efforts to boost food sufficiency in the sector.

The distributed fertilisers included 156 bags of NPK fertilizer and 68 bags of UREA fertiliser.

He said  that he aimed at supporting production of various crops such as cassava, rice, cocoa, tomato, and maize.

Adegbonmire expressed his commitment to the senatorial district and assured that he would continue to do more for the district.

He said the move was a practical step toward achieving agricultural growth and ensuring a stable food supply within Nigeria.

According to him, the initiative underlines his commitment to supporting the constituents and advancing the nation’s agricultural sector.

Appreciating the gesture, Mr  Adebiyi Oluwalanu, Chairman,  Tomato Farmers Association in Ondo State, expressed the beneficiaries’ gratitude to the senator for helping them, saying that the move would boost their ability to produce more for citizens to consume.

Similarly, Mr. Adebayo Abayomi, the state Secretary of the Cocoa Farmers Association and  Mr Akinriade Kayode, the state Chairman of the Maize Grower Association, said that the senator’s kindness would go a long way to cushion the effects of high cost of production.
