The Millennium Development Authority (MiDA) would build over 400 new schools and also provide other social services to modernise and improve upon agricultural productivity in each of the 23 beneficiary districts selected for the implementation of the project in the country.

The project would also include the provision of irrigation facilities, construction of dams, credit for the production, transportation, storage, processing and other related value chain activities in the selected districts across the country.

Mr. Martin Eson-Benjamin, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of MiDA announced this when he inaugurated the Karaga District Advisory Committee (DAC) of the MiDA at Karaga.

The Committee is made up of representatives of farmers’ organisations, the private sector, civil society, women’s associations, anti-corruption associations and environmental and social organisations.

The Committee would give advice and provide inputs to MiDA as to the peculiar problems in their communities to regulate the implementation of the projects.

Mr. Benjamin said with the inauguration of the committee, MiDA was now into full scale implementation of all the compact projects.

He expressed the hope that the committee members would take their appointments with excitement and work hard to assist MiDA to deliver effectively in the district, adding that the committee was a collaborative relationship and must therefore facilitate progress of work.

“You must not be one which will add a layer of bureaucracy or become another bottleneck in our implementation process,” he said.

Mr. Baba Wahab, Karaga District Chief Executive, (DCE) stressed the need to address the traditional farming practices which had an adverse effect on agricultural production and now adopt appropriate techniques of reducing poverty through agricultural transformation.

He said prior to the inauguration of the DAC twelve personnel of the Assembly had benefited from an orientation training to enable them to disseminate the objectives and implementation procedure of MiDA in the Communities.

He said 39 Farmer Based Organisations (FBOs) had been formed and four small and medium scale enterprises had also been identified in the district and were ready to effectively utilise any support given them by MiDA.
