“Regarding patronage, I acknowledge the importance of high-quality packaging in all our endeavors. Effective packaging is crucial as it significantly enhances the appeal of our products and services, making them more attractive to customers, not just locally but also on a global scale. By maintaining top-notch standards in this area, you can expand your reach and increase market share internationally.

“When it comes to agricultural business, I fully understand and agree that it is an investment that requires patience and time. Unlike some other sectors, the returns on agricultural investments are not immediate. They depend on various factors including seasons and growth cycles.

“Historically, before the discovery and exploitation of oil, agriculture was the main source of wealth for our country. It provided economic stability and food security. Therefore, revitalizing and investing in agriculture is essential, as it remains a vital sector with the potential to contribute significantly to our economy once again”.
