This was contained in a press statement signed by the Head of Information unit of the state Ministry of Agriculture, Mr Bolu Ajijo which was made available to The Hope yesterday.
The statement read that the scheme will encourage communities and individual land owners to release their land in trust to the State on lease arrangement in order to make lands easily accessible and available to genuine and serious investors willing to take advantage of the vast agricultural opportunities in the state.
