A team from the Federal Government and International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) has inspected some projects executed under the agricultural Value Chain Development Programme (VCDP-AF) in five local government areas (LGAs) of Kogi State. 

The IFAD-VCDP Country Programme Officer, Mrs Mariatu Kamara, who led the team on “9th IFAD Mission Visit To Kogi State”, at the end of inspection in Ajaokuta, expressed satisfaction with the impacts VCDP had made in the five benefiting LGAs in Kogi State.

She said the development objective of VCDP was to ensure that women and youths were fully able to acquire income on what they were doing, adding that the VCDP impact in Kogi was “very impressive.”

“I am satisfied with what we have seen so far, though there are areas of improvement, but so far, we are satisfied as a team,” she said.

In her remarks, the State Programme Coordinator, Kogi IFAD/VCDP, Dr Stella Adejoh, said the VCDP was a commercially oriented, market-led, demand-driven project designed to respond to market needs of end-users of rice and cassava commodities.
