PDP RICE WILL SOON FLOOD THE MARKET
The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Dr. Bamanga Turkur has described food security as a fundamental factor to peace and unity in Nigeria and paid glowing tributes to the commitment of the Ebonyi State Governor, Chief Martin Elechi to the development of agriculture.
“Food security is fundamental to a peaceful and united Nigeria. It is for this reason that the founding fathers of our great Party anchored the prosperity of our dear nation on the full exploitation of our vast agricultural potentials so that we can sufficiently feed our people as well have enough for export."
Dr. Tukur spoke today when Governor Elechi paid a New Year courtesy visit to the National Secretariat of the Party.
" Your vote for massive agricultural development in Ebonyi state is an issue at the heart of the manifesto of our great Party while the gains you have so far recorded are proof to the efficacy of our party's objectives in agriculture. It is also a clear evidence that our party and its manifesto are alive in your state."
According to Dr. Tukur, “because agriculture holds the key to food and job security, the PDP led Federal Government has keyed in job opportunities in the agricultural sector as a veritable weapon in tackling the current security challenges in the country."
Earlier in his speech, the Ebony State Governor, Chief Elechi commended Dr. Tukur and other members of the National Working Committee for holding high, the core vision of the Party despite minor disagreements on issues.
" We are here to pay our solidarity to you and the NWC for the commendable leadership you give to the Party and through that, to the nation. We came to say a happy new year and keep you abreast of our efforts in service to the people of Ebonyi State."
He further informed the Party of the three new high capacity rice mills his administration established in the three senatorial zones of the State and restated his determination to fully tap the agricultural endowments that abound in Ebonyi.
"These world class rice mills will no doubt boost our of efforts in ensuring a zero rice importation regime in the country. He added, “PDP rice will soon flood the market."

The attention of the South East Zone of the People's Democratic Party has been drawn to spurious publications in a section of the media alleging unfounded claims of bias against the Hon Minister of Aviation, Princess Stella Oduah in the recruitment exercise carried out by some parastatals in her ministry.
The leadership of our great Party in the southeast makes bold to state categorically that this baseless allegation is yet another futile attempt by opposition elements to smear the image of the Minister and denigrate her well earned reputation as a distinguished Nigerian and a worthy assets of our great Party, the PDP.
Princess Oduah, though a proud daughter of the Southeast zone, has proven herself to be a detribalized Nigerian both in her private business and in the discharge of her duties as Minister. The current massive upgrading of airports in all the geopolitical zones in the country bear testimony to this.
We are proud to observe that Princess Oduah's performance in office is a major plank of President Jonathan's transformation agenda.
These sponsored provocative publications are designed by opposition elements who are envious of her sterling performance and who feel threatened by her rising profile as a dedicated minister and exemplary member of our great Party.
For the records, Princess Oduah is not involved directly or indirectly in staff recruitment of any parastatal under her. There is a well established bureaucracy to handle such matters while she concerns herself with the huge task of driving the well applauded reforms in the aviation sector.Read more...
