A’Ibom Moves to Boost Mechanised Agriculture, Introduce Equipment Leasing Services

The Akwa Ibom State government announced plans to collaborate with Bertola Machine Tools Limited to enhance food production in the region, aligning with the State Government’s commitment to achieving the agricultural revolution goals outlined in its ARISE Agenda.

Governor Umo Eno disclosed this during a weekend visit to the company’s premises in Ifa Atai, Airport Road, Uyo. He toured the facility and inspected purpose-built machines and tools designed for agricultural activities.

The governor confirmed plans to establish equipment leasing services to give farmers access to essential machinery, thereby enhancing food sufficiency. Partnering with Bertola Machine Tools Limited will be crucial in achieving this goal.

Governor Eno commended Bertola for its consistent performance in the equipment and machinery industry, praising the company for maintaining its integrity in its nationwide dealings over the years.

“As part of our agricultural revolution,” he said, “we are setting up an equipment leasing company to support farmers in Akwa Ibom. That’s why we’re here.”

“We’re talking about an agricultural revolution,” Governor Eno continued, “and if someone has what we need to achieve this vision, we need to patronize and support them.”

Governor Eno further instructed the Commissioner for Agriculture, Dr. Offiong Offor, and the Commissioner for Works and Fire Service, Professor Eno Ibanga, to collaborate on developing a partnership agreement with Bertola Machine Tools Limited.
