Special Adviser to Imo State Governor on Agriculture Development Programme, ADP,. Chief Gibson Njemanze (Oyiga), has recovered more properties and assets of Agriculture Development Programme, ADP, in Imo State, in private hands.
The latest recovered property, is a Hilux van, which was cartered away by a former member of Imo State House of Assembly during the tenure of former Governor Rochas Okorocha.
Last month, a 13 man Task Force Set up by the SA, to recover all ADP assets and properties, recovered gigantic Power Tillers, equipments used for rice production, from the private farm of former Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, in Assa, Ohaji/Egbema Local Government Area.
Also recovered were ploughs, and various agriculture equipments stolen from the agency by past officials of previous administrations in the State.
On assumption of office as Special Adviser on ADP, on June 17, 2020, and in line with the 3Rs mantra of the Uzodinma administration, Oyiga swung into action, and took several proactive measures to revive a moribound ADP, which was abandoned by past administrations in the State.
The Uzodinma administration has shown commitment to reposition ADP, to enable it live up to it’s statutory responsibility which is to serve as an interventionist agency to boost agriculture development in Imo State.
The agency has been in comatose condition due to non availability of statutory subvention from past administrations, which made the agency redundant and moribound.
