People with Disabilities PWD will begin to benefit from agricultural empowerment to improve their standard of living, their community and the state at large.

This would also enhance food production and sufficiency thereby reducing the present hardship in the state and the nation at large.

Speaking in an interview with The Hope, the Chairman of Agbeladun empowerment initiative described People With Disabilities as most vulnerable who should not be  neglected, but be encouraged to impact meaningfully in their various communities and the state at large .

“There are lots of values among the disabled so we want to assist them in agriculture.

“Albinos can go into Tomato production and can be encouraged through grants and training to enable them develop in agriculture.

“We have plans to assist them in what they are doing and part of whatever is gotten in terms of grains shall be used to empower them.

“They may not necessary go into real farming but can be assisted in whatever they are doing.

At a meeting held on Sunday in Akure, the Ondo State capital Fadoju said the mandate is purely to add value to farmers particularly in the area of training and sourcing of grants from diverse sources both home and abroad.

While calling on anyone that is interested in farming to join the initiative across the 18 local government areas of the state, Fadoju expressed happiness with the present leadership of OSACA in the state under the leadership Chief Engr Abiodun Adejo who he said remained a value addition to Ondo State”
