Anambra State Government Launches Anambra Rice, Sells at N9000Sunday, August 07, 2016
Governor Willie Obiano recently launched the Anambra Rice on Facebook.
The governor wrote:
My people, when my administration made agriculture her number 1 pillar for development, many others did not see what we were seeing. We were strategically positioning Anambra for the days of little just like Joseph prepared the Egyptians for the 7 years of famine.
Now, we are rated high in agriculture. A lot of Ndi Anambra are investing heavily in agriculture. We are moving closer to food sufficiency and soon Anambra farmers will become net exporters for every farm produce (that is in addition to vegetables which we already export of course).
There is hope my people. Ndi Anambra will flourish even in the desert.More photos when you continue...
The operations of the Anambra state rice mill had been reinvigorated through a loan provided by the Anambra Small Business Agency and it presently mills approximately nine thousand bags of rice a day.
