The group’s representative, Mr. Franklin Oloniou, said this in Akura during a stakeholder dialogue to address the problems faced by small female farmers in the state.

According to him, “the government of the state of Ondo recorded positive steps in its contribution to the growth of the agricultural sector, which led to significant economic development for all citizens.”

Due to financial constraints on the part of the government, Olonia, who is the Director-General of the Organization for Development of Life and Peace (LAPDO), called on the government to develop new methods for financing agriculture.
