The governorship candidate of the APC, Pastor Tonye Cole has promised that his government will ensure that the popular Ogoni garri will be well processed and exported to all parts of the world, once elected as Governor. He made this promise while addressing the indigens of Tai Local Government Area, during the Tai LGA flag off rally.
The Co-founder of Sahara Energy said his government will invest massively in the agricultural sector. He highlighted the importance of agriculture in poverty alleviation and ensuring a secure environment. He decried the current government’s neglect of the major agricultural projects situated in Tai LGA. “The Songhai Farm and Banana Plantation that was setup by Amaechi has been abandoned by the Wike administration! All the jobs that these projects gave you have been taken away. I will ensure those projects are revived and your jobs are given back to you”. “One of the first things I will do when I am elected as your governor will be to ensure your Garri is well processed and exported to all corners of the world”
Pastor Tonye Cole also emphasized on the importance of education, stating that the number of out of school children in the local government is alarming and a recipe for disaster. He committed to ensuring everyone has access to quality education.
