2, 000 000 Tenera Palm Seedlings Already Planted In Abia Under Ikpeazu, 2, 000 000 More To Be Added By Years End

Abia: an economic revolution with Palms in the offing. 

By John Okiyi Kalu

As at today Governor Okezie Ikpeazu has planted more than 2,000,000 tenera palm seedlings in Abia State with plans to plant additional 2,000,000 this year.

His target is 7, 500,000 palm seedlings by December 2019.

Dr M I Okpara should be smiling from heaven. Just like Dee Sam Mbakwe saw the new Faulks Road Aba and smiled from heaven.

Think about this: by 2021 Abia State will run her economy on palm oil and the associated palm  value chain products. Just like the old Eastern Nigeria.

Forget crude oil and federal allocations. We are on course to wean ourselves of crude “tinz”.

Governor Ikpeazu made agriculture one of the pillars of his administration for a good reason: Abia has the most fertile soil in Africa.

Google and confirm, if in doubt.

With our poultry clusters spread across the 3 geopolitical zones of the State we should be self sufficient in white meat production within 3 years and you can keep your beef and it’s associated blood feuds.

God is helping us in Abia and our future is brighter than ever.
