Ogun State Government is collaborating with the Federal Ministry of Water Resources, for the establishment of two irrigation dams, to boost farming in the state.

Commissioner for Agriculture, Mrs. Adepeju Adebajo, who disclosed this, while receiving the management of Ogun-Osun River Basin Development Authority, in her office at Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, said preliminary work was underway for the irrigation projects, sited at the Ikenne and Ijebu-Idode Farm Settlements.

Her words: ‘’The Ikenne irrigation dam will be 2,500 hectares of farmland, while that of Ijebu Idode will cover 1,000 hectares. Aside from this, the dam will also assist the state government intervention programme in the area,’’ she said.

Mrs. Adebayo added that the projects which are expected to be completed by the end of the year would benefit the host communities and the farmers.
