Benue State is the richest state in Nigeria, but our leaders don't know so our people are suffering in the midst of plenty. This will change in 2019.
We have all it takes to process our products locally and sell at the prices we wish to the companies where ever they are. We cannot wait for the government or big money bags. Imagine 1000 farmers in Mbadede ward in Vandeikya contributing 1000 naira monthly for 6 months that is 6 million naira . Multiply this by ten wards . That is 60 million Naira in Vandeikya alone. This is enough to set up a medium sized factory with collaboration with a Foreign company . We can do this for Orange Factories, Mango Factories and Yam processing Factories. This is my vision for Zone A to have Agricultural independence.
