The Cross River State Government has laid the foundation for the establishment of the Agro-Industrial Mechanization and Equipment Distribution Initiative (AMEDI) in Obudu, after approval by the Federal Government. 


The Executive Vice Chairman/Chief Executive of NASENI, Prof. M.S. Haruna, described the governor of Cross River as an achiever, who deserves to be celebrated for this landmark achievement.

The initiative is aimed at providing farmers in the state with modern equipment and technology to boost agricultural productivity and improve the livelihoods of farmers in the state.

It was gathered that the institute is to produce high-tech agricultural equipment to ease and modernise farming.

He said, “We are here today not only to lay the foundation for the construction of AMEDI but to celebrate an achiever, Governor Ayade.

“I must confess it is his performance, his record that made us to decide that AMEDI was suitable to be cited in a cluster of industries in Obudu here in Northern Cross River and the President graciously approved our recommendation.”

Haruna explained, that Ayade’s achievements and track record prompted President Muhammadu Buhari to approve the citing of AMEDI in Cross River.

He added that the institute is not just a regular institute, but a South-South zonal institute for agriculture.

“There are to be only six in the entire country, and one of them is located here. It is also among the first three in phase one of the construction and development of this institute.”

During his speech at the ceremony, Ayade thanked the President for thinking that the project was important for the state, “I want to celebrate President Buhari. I want to celebrate my friend, Prof. Haruna. For those who know what I have done in this state, it is only in the fullness of time that you will see the manifestation of our dream.

“I want you to take a message back to President Buhari and say to him that I and the people of Cross River thank him very much for finding our dear state worthy of this noble special project.”
