The commissioner said that, “We are privileged to be in charge of Food Security, Industrial Linkage, Land administration among others, accounting for the influx of investors into our dear State. I sincerely appreciate you all, during the outgone year, we were not found wanting, that doesn’t mean that there is no room for improvement.

“We are more of social technologists, we should have good relationship with our clients, attend to people with courtesy and let’s keep our record. As we forge ahead in our drive to implement our agricultural plans and programmes, I urge you all to be more productive, focused, friendly and firm even as we attend to our farmers with courtesy and good relationship,”
