Ohere said this in Lokoja while receiving elders of Ejuku-Ejiba community in Yagba West local government area of the state who were on thank you visit to the governor for sitting such massive project on their soil.
He pointed out that the rice mill which would position the State among leading rice producers in the country would bring about robust economic growth and generate over 5,000 jobs
The Special Adviser affirmed that if such drive towards industrialization continued, the State was on its path to economic buoyancy and an unprecedented development which the young generation would be proud to witness.
He further stated that the Rice Milling factory has the capacity to produce an estimated fifty tones daily which translate to over one thousand packaged (50kg) Confluence Rice every single day; six thousand bags weekly and twenty four thousand bags monthly to ensure food security and improved revenue for the state.
