He said that efforts would be made to reposition the monitoring arm of the secretariat to achieve the desired objectives of all ongoing agricultural programmes in the FCT.

In his words, “We will put in more efforts in the area of monitoring of your programmes, follow the implementation of the programmes, so as to realise the desired outcome.”

Sadeeq emphasised the need for all the departments and agencies under the secretariat to work in synergy to ensure effective service delivery in the agricultural sector.

He noted that the quest for food security would only be attained when all stakeholders support each other, share professional ideas and work in harmony.
