The Management of Glucheng Integrated Services Limited (GIS farm), recently paid a courtesy visit to the Transition Committee Chairman of Orumba North Local Government Area, Hon. Sir Ogo Ekwueme with a request to partner with the local government to enhance agriculture in the area.

Speaking during the visit, the leader of the delegation, Engr. Mmaduabuchi Ezeh noted that they were at the Council Secretariat to introduce the company to the Chairman and to solicit his support especially in the area of land acquisition through a lease agreement that could enable a sustainable system in the agric sector, create jobs and reduce hunger in the state.

Ezeh emphasized that “There are areas we have lands already and many of them are not really motorable. We are not really soliciting for entirely new road construction but they can be graded. Then, secondly, we still need more land ranging from at least a thousand to five thousand acres of land. However, anyone we can get from the government will be okay.

In his remarks, the Chairman of Orumba North, Hon. Sir Ogo Ekwueme while thanking them for the visit informed the delegation of agriculture being an integral part of his agenda.

“So, it keys in perfectly with what you are saying. There’s a lot of things we want to do there and we will be happy to partner with the private sector to achieve most of these plans basically because government can’t do all these things by itself. More so, this is a local council, the sources of revenue is limited. So, most of our plans will be achieved through partnership with the private sector”, he stated.
