The son of ex – Ondo State Governor , Mr . Muyiwa Olumilua , has scored the Ekiti State government low in agriculture and youth empowerment . Olumilua , who disclosed this in Ado Ekiti yesterday , said he expected the state to have made impact in rice production like Kebbi, Ogun and Lagos States .
According to him , Ekiti has a comparative advantage in agriculture due to its favourable climatic and soil condition . He said : “ The largest employer of labour in Ekiti is agriculture , adding that not much has been done in the area . Israel is a desert, but it exports food items even to Nigeria . ”
Olumilua said Ekiti has one of the best climates in the world , which if properly harnessed could feed Africa. He promised to bridge the gender gap by giving 40 per cent of appointments to women , so that they could exhibit their potential .
While commending President Muhammadu Buhari on the anti – corruption war, he urged the APC government to be more proactive to ensure that looters are prosecuted and jailed . According to him , it is only when one “ sacred cow is jailed that others would sit right . ”
