Udom Emmanuel has committedly crashed the market price of Garri



With garri as the major food of the people, Governor Udom Emmanuel has committedly crashed the market price of this very important commodity from 3 cups for N200 in 2015 when he assumed office to 13 cups for N200 by 2018, three years after…..

Here are well starked Ibom Garri part of government efforts at making garri accessible to the people for consumption and commercial use.


If you need contact the Technical Committee on Agriculture and Food Sufficiency along Esuene Street, Federal Housing Estate by Abak Road,Uyo for contact to any of the garri processing Mills in the state for purchase or distributorship.

Need it be mentioned that at least 3 tons of garri is produced daily from each of the processing mills across the three senatorial districts of the state.

Little wonder then that Akwa Ibom markets are flooded with garri at affordable cost and wider reach.

It would be recalled that, in rising to the challenge of high cost of garri, Governor Udom Emmanuel has embarked on the “garri at your door step initiative”, with massive cultivation of cassava, to ensure an all-year-round availability of cassava, with all the value chain derivatives including garri, foofoo, foofoo powder, starch.

Governor Udom Emmanuel is also providing incentives to encourage farmers and co-operatives to undertake large scale cassava cultivation through provision of subsidised fertilisers, improved cassava cuttings and soft loans.

All these will leave no one in doubt of Governor Udom Emmanuel’s revolutionary-drive in the Agriculture sub-sector towards ensuring food sufficiency and particularly affordable garri for the people.

Now my parting words, cultivate cassava to support agric renaissance in the state. The best cassava cuttings are harvested within a short period of 6 months. The name is “MAKOSSA”.
