Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong, has asked farmers in the state to go into flower production, as it is economically viable and in demand at the international market.

This call is coming barely a week after the Daily Trust report titled ‘How Plateau youths are making brisk business from flower farming’ received positive reactions.

Meanwhile, Governor Lalong, who spoke while meeting with some French investors in Jos, after their two-day visit, said his administration is determined to return the state to the export of flowers which was popular in the 70s and 80s.

Lalong said with the designation of the Yakubu Gowon Airport as a Cargo Airport, the export of flowers will be seamless, and that it will be complemented by the nearby Inland Container Terminal which is being activated.

In his remarks, the leader of the French team, Yan Fortunato, said after their visit which took them to six local government areas of the state, they were convinced by the enormous potentials of the state in agriculture which needs to be developed through mechanization and improved practices.
