Gov. Caleb Mutfwang of Plateau has promised to invest more toward making the state the agricultural hub of Nigeria.

The governor made the promise while swearing in some newly appointed Special Advisers on Monday in Jos.

Mutfwang, who decried the hardships in the country, promised to tackle insecurity to enable farmers go to their farms at all times.

“With the current economic situation, we have no option but to return to agriculture.

“One of the key things we must pursue is the business of agriculture; we must take advantage of our rich potential to make Plateau the agriculture hub of Nigeria.

“The world is waiting of us to export flowers, strawberry, coffee, vegetables and other items to foreign countries; the market is there for us to explore.

“Let me encourage our people to go back to agriculture and as a government we will support this move.

“But there must be peace for people to farm, that is why we revived the Plateau Peace Building Agency and taken other measures that will guarantee the security of our farmers.”

Mutfwang, who congratulated the appointees, said that they were carefully selected based on their past records.

He charged them to hit the ground running by moving round to attract investors into the state.

“It is a critical time for all government appointees.

“You must put on your thinking caps and help us to generate funds for development,” the governor said.(NAN) (www.nannews.ng)
