Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has secured the commitment of the German government for the establishment of a green agricultural centre in the state.
German Minister of Economic Cooperation, Mr. Gerd Muller, disclosed this at the end of a meeting between representatives of his government and a visiting team from Ogun, led by Mr. Amosun, in Berlin, Germany.
Muller acknowledged the conducive economic environment in Ogun State and expressed his country’s readiness to intensify the economic ties between it and the state government.
Muller, who visited Ogun in June, said the trip changed his perception about Nigeria, expressing confidence about the great potential that abound in the state.
The minister explained that the centre, to be cited within a tertiary institution, would serve as an innovation point where the two governments intend to intensify their ties and cooperation.
Muller commended Amosun’s administration for its urban renewal initiative.
He highlighted other areas of possible cooperation between Germany and Ogun State as human capacity development, wealth creation and promotion of vocational education.
