The governor of Taraba State, Agbu Kefas, has reiterated his administration’s commitment to collaborate with foreign investors to modernise farming in the state.
The action, according to him, will enable local farmers spread across the state to compete globally.
He stated this on Tuesday in Jalingo, the state capital, while signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with a Czech Republic-based company.
According to him, the Taraba State government has entered into an agreement with the company to supply no fewer than 750 new multi-purpose mini tractors.
He said that 100 sets of Cabrio compact tractors, accessories, tools, and spare parts will be supplied by the company for small and medium-scale farmers in the state.
The agricultural machinery and accessories are expected to be delivered to the state within the first 100 days of his administration.
The governor avowed that his actions are geared towards kick-starting the revitalisation of the agricultural sector in the state.
DAILY POST recalls that a summit to herald the presence of local, national, and international investors was recently organised in the state by the new administration.
