Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki has confirmed that the Edo Fertilizer Blending Plant in Auchi, Estako West, will begin commercial production by mid-June 2017.
The plant will have the capacity to produce 55 000 metric tpy of fertilizer and will employ over 100 people.
“I am quite impressed with the progress of work here because if you compared the situation now to what we met about two and half months ago, when we came here first, you can see that there is a significant difference.”
“We have been able to get the technical partners under the Federal Government’s fertilizer programme to start work here and they have made some investment to revamp the plant.”
“The equipment have been tested and manufacturers were brought to fix the faulty parts.”
“They are also constructing a new line to meet up with the specification of the federal government fertilizer programme,’’ Obaseki said.
