Towards repositioning the Agricultural sector, a call for synergy among the various departments of the FCTA Agriculture and Rural Development Secretariat has been emphasized.
The synergy is expected to make every staff put in their best with supporters to enhance food security in the territory.
Mandate Secretary for Agriculture and Rural Development Secretariat, Lawan Kolo Geidam made the call during a meeting with staff of the Secretariat in Abuja.
He noted that the activities of the departments are interconnected hence their collective efforts were crucial in enhancing food production and transforming the agricultural sector into a significant source of employment and wealth for the growing population.
Geidam explained that working in isolation would not yield the desired outcomes stressing the necessity of cooperation among the departments.
“The activities of the Departments are interwoven. All are geared towards not only boosting food production but making the sector a viable source of job and wealth creation for our teeming population and we cannot achieve this in isolation all the departments must work in synergy to achieve this objective”.
Geidam who however expressed satisfaction with the level of progress he met on the ground, pledged to build on the feat the Secretariat had already attained to ensure that all challenges are tackled head-on.
” I am optimistic that with the commitment of our dear President, Bola Ahmed Tinubu ably supported by the Minister, FCT, Nyesom Wike, and Minister of State, Dr. Mariya Mahmoud, these challenges will be addressed. All we need from you as civil servants is sincerity and diligence in doing your jobs” Geidam said.
Geidam further revealed that he will visit all agricultural project sites to assess the current state of the projects and identify areas for improvement.
He said relevant innovative strategies would be adopted to enhance efficiency for improved productivity in the nation’s capital, even as he emphasized training and retraining of staff.
“By imparting this knowledge, we hope to empower individuals to engage in agriculture as entrepreneurs, fostering economic growth, and creating employment opportunities in the process”.
