Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, will on Tuesday inaugurate the Edo State Fertiliser and Chemical Company Limited located in Auchi, Etsako West Local Government Area of the state.

The plant is said to have a capacity of 55,000 metric tonnes.

Osinbajo is scheduled to pay a courtesy visit to the Oba of Benin, His Royal Majesty, Oba Ewuare II, before proceeding to Auchi for the commissioning of the fertiliser plant.

The plant according to the governor’s spokesman, Crusoe Osagie, was rehabilitated in collaboration with WACOT Limited as part of efforts to create an avenue for the youths to leverage on the expertise of major players in the agricultural sector.

It stated that the project was aimed at aiding the actualisation of the Presidential Fertiliser Initiative launched by President Muhammadu Buhari in 2016.
