Plateau state government has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Oil and Chemical International, a member of the Duncan Group of companies, to set up a 40 tonnes fertiliser blending plant in Foron in Barkin Ladi local government area of the state.

The state Commissioner of Commerce, Ezekiel Daju, who signed on behalf of the state government, said the occasion was another milestone in the Governor Simon Lalong led administration.

He said: “As we all know, most citizens of our state are farmers and fertiliser is an essential ingredient in Agriculture. Due to the fallen price of oil, the state government has keyed into diversification and our Governor, Simon Lalong has vowed to transform the Agriculture sector in order to boost food production and the Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) of the state.”
