The disbursement was done under the Agricultural Credit Guarantee Scheme Fund which has been ongoing since 1978.

Olukoya said from the N500m, some farmers got as low as N250, 000 while others accessed up to N1m loan base on their needs.

She said, “In 2020, about N500m was raised for about 1500 farmers in Ogun State. Since we have more farmers that have been participating in it in Ogun State, we have different categories, some got N250, 000 some got N1m.”

While encouraging Nigerians to take farming seriously, she advised that farming should be taken seriously by everyone no matter the choice of the profession that the discovery of oil led to the neglect of agriculture.

CBN in collaboration with the ACGSF board awarded three farmers out of the 1500 for prompt loan repayment, good record keeping, harnessing the value chain of the product line and increased productivity.

Olusegun Akindele emerged best farmer of the year 2020 in Ogun State while Temidayo Akinsehinwa and Adisa Sanni emerged first and second runners up respectively.

The branch Director, Wahab Olarenwaju, who was represented by his assistant, Yemi Folorunsho, said the award was to encourage farmers and advised farmers to keep up their efforts for the sake of food security in the country.
