Oyo State Economy Will Soon Boost Via Sugar Production As Makinde Aide Visits NSDC Boss

The National Sugar Development Council, NSDC, has promised to boost the economy of Oyo State through its Sugar Factory in the State.

The Executive Secretary of NSDC, Mr Zacch Adedeji made the promise when the Director General of the Oyo State Liason Office, Abuja, Mr Wale Ajani visited him in Abuja.

Mr Adedeji who said the Council has already established a Mini Sugar Factory in Iseyin and Iwajowa Local Government Areas of the State said Oyo, Ogun and Lagos States have 80 percent of sugar consumption in the country.

He explained that NSDC is working with Sugarcane Farmers Cooperative Societies towards enhancing the growth of the sector in the State.

According to him, the Council has put in place necessary policies and programmes that would accelerate Nigeria’s drive to attain self sufficiency in sugar production as captured in the Nigerian Sugar Master Plan, NSMP, which is a ten year document for the sector.
