Rivers State Government Will Partner With CBN For Commercial Agric Development

Governor Nyesom Wike said his government is seriously interested in commercial agricultural development; he had said that the government’s main focus would be oil palm and cassava production. Wike made this statement on Tuesday as he received Mr. Kazeem Adekunle-Alaka who is the Port Harcourt Branch Controller, Central Bank of Nigeria.

“With the good policy initiatives springing up from the CBN, I want to assure you that we will always collaborate with you in our programmes,” Wike told Mr. Kazeem Adekunle-Alaka. He also said that “The BVN policy has led to tremendous reduction in the wage bill of our state, today only verified staff are paid salaries.”

While speaking, Mr. Kazeem Adekunle-Alaka stated that the CBN is very ready to partner with the Rivers State government in agricultural development.
