The Ondo State Government is set to open up a total of 543km of rural roads across the 18 Local Government Areas of the State as part of its Rural Access and Agricultural Marketing project (RAAMP).

The Akeredolu led Administration has also concluded plans to establish six agro-logistics hubs as components of the project.

The Special Adviser to the Governor on Rural and Community Development, Hon Victor Adekanye Olabimtan who made this known said efforts of the present Administration to develop the agricultural sector and increase agro-business performance for farmers have brought the State into valuable partnership with the World Bank, African Development Bank and the French Development Agency.

The partnership is to provide accessibility to rural communities in the State to curb the problems of post-harvest losses that have cost farmers the needed economic benefits in their farming career. Already, roads prioritization studies haves been carried out in all the 18 Local Government Areas of the State .

Olabintan said the establishment of agro-logistics hub is focusing on connecting the small scale farmers to at least two rural agro-logistic hubs that will provide access to agricultural services.
