  He said the event was well-thought out as it helped in beaming the search light on the people who ensured we are all alive and living well.

   "Farmers are one of the most important segments in every society. They are indispensable, given the unique service they render all all and sundry. Their efforts, through hard work, sweat in the farms bring food to the table for all of us to eat. Unfortunately, these people are hardly recognised or celebrated. This day is dedicated to them. We at ifad/LIFE-ND, which produce farmers, find it commendable."

     Olawale added that the day was important for both the farmers and the people as it serves to enhance both parties.
He said the World Food Day highlights general issues about about food security.

 "The World Food Day creates awareness is globally about food security. When we talk about Food Security, it means eating the right type of food, the right quantity and the right nutrition value at the right time. These issues if well understood and adhered to will make all of us live better"

  It will be recalled that Ondo State joined the rest of the world to mark the World Food Day at a carnival-like ceremony last week.

The event, which took place at the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry premises, was attended  by stakeholders, groups and other agriculture-related organisations. 

   It was an opportunity for the agencies and programs to put on display their farm produce and products. One of the major projects that took part in the show was Ifad/LIFE-ND Ondo Project Office.
The project's officials, trained and empowered farmers (incubatees) in blue T-shirt over jeans and skirt, with face caps occupied a separate giant canopy. 
They had on displayed their products such as fishes, cassava, eggs and cocoa. 

 Messages were delivered by Mr. Olayato Aribo, the State Commissioner for Agriculture and Foresty, Senior Special Assistant on Agribusiness, Akin Olotu and others.

    The Commissioner and other dignitaries later went round to inspect the farm produce and products available.
