BRIEF ON THE MINISTRY

The Ministry of Forestry was carved out of the Ministry of Agriculture in August, 2004 (to become the first and only Ministry of Forestry in the Country) so as to fully exploit and develop the potentials of the State’s forest resource in all ramifications. The primary responsibility of the Ministry is to ensure rapid development of the State’s forest resources in all ramifications.  It is also to coordinate all forestry activities in the State with a view to ensuring controlled and orderly exploitation of timber and non-timber forest resources so as to prevent soil degradation and provide mitigation against other disasters such as erosion, flood, global warming etc. which could result from deforestation.

Ogun State can be considered as the cradle of Forestry in Nigeria because the first Forest Reserve in the country is situated here in Ogun State at Olokemeji, it was established in 1915. Apart from this, the State can also boast of the largest industrial tree plantation in the Country – Ogun State Forestry Plantation Project, Area J4 occupying an area of 670.67sqkm.

The importance of forestry, particularly in Ogun State is extensive.  The forests make valuable contributions to the development of the economy of the State and to the general standard of living of the populace. Interestingly, Ogun State is naturally endowed with abundant forestry resources, which when harnessed could support wide range of economic activities in the State in particular and the nation in general.

Vision

The vision is to pursue with vigour forest regeneration activities and reclamation of environmentally unstable areas in the State, and to develop and manage forest resources on sustainable yield basis to ensure continuous and uninterrupted supply of Timber and Non-Timber Forest Products.

Mission

The Ministry’s mission is to ensure rapid development and conservation of our forest resources through regeneration and controlled exploitation of timber and non-timber forest resources for the purpose of economic development and environmental sustainability.

 

Policy Thrust & Objectives

The broad policy objectives of the Ministry are enumerated below:

  • To ensure adequate and continuous supply of forest produce through the development and orderly exploitation of the State’s Forest Resources in order to protect the environment and ecology.
  • To provide employment opportunities for the youths especially the rural dwellers through the encouragement and development of timber and non-timber related industries.
  • To protect our forest estates against any form of encroachment, damage or destruction and to regenerate the forests at a rate that is higher than that of exploitation.
  • To mount extensive campaigns on the need for individuals, schools, communities, organized private sector, Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) to grow trees on their farmland.
  • To develop, manage and protect wildlife in order to prevent the extinction of rare or endangered species.

  • Private Afforestation Programme: As it is being advocated by Government at all levels, private individuals are being involved in developmental projects/programmes. This is to hasten the rate at which developmental projects are completed. In line with this, the Ministry has a policy of involving private investors in forestry activities. The investors are given allocation within the forest reserve for establishment of Agroforestry plantation.

The Master Plan is to help in the sustainable management of the available forestry resources. The first step towards the development of the Master Plan is to carry out comprehensive forest inventory.

Investment policy of the State forestry sub-sector

Industrial development is a major factor in the promotion of the economic development of the people.  Therefore, it is the responsibility of the government to promote and facilitate industrial growth with a view to enhancing accelerated economic development through industrialization of the state. The state government’s investment policy in the forestry sub-sector includes:

  • To ensure private participation in the socio-economic development of the forestry sub-sector especially in plantation establishment and eco-tourism,
  • Promotion and encouragement of rapid development of the processing, manufacturing and other allied activities in the sub-sector.
  • Creation of a favourable and enabling investment environment which will attract and enhance private investment in the forestry sub-sector of our economy.
  • Maximize local value addition through the processing of wood for export and utilization of wood by-products.
  • Sustenance of the state’s leading role in the production of wood and wood materials.
  • Sustenance of the existing structural and institutional framework for the development of the forestry sub-sector.

Investment incentives in the Forestry Sub-sector

In its bid to accelerate the pace of forest resources development in the state through the private sector participation, the state had recently introduced some measures such as:-

  • Review of forestry law to accommodate low tariffs for private plantation owners.
  • Provision of land in designated rural areas for forest plantation establishment.
  • Improved rural road network.
  • Open door policy through close and healthy relationship between the state government and the Organized Private Sector.
  • Distribution/Sales of timber seedlings to private investors at highly subsidized rates.
  • Tax concession/low tariff on logging activities on private plantations
  • Concessionary interest rates on Forestry loans.
  • Wide- spread extension services on forest plantation establishment.

Business and investment opportunities in the Forestry sub-sector

Historically, timber was one of the earliest produce exported regularly from Nigeria between 1806 and 1975 at the time when Forestry contributed greatly to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and foreign exchange earning. The forest produce have the potentials to be a major foreign exchange earner if adequate resources are re-allocated to the sub-sector. Ogun state no doubt has abundant human, material and ecological resources for sustainable forestry activities. The investment opportunities which abound in the state’s forestry sub-sector are enumerated below:-

Ecotourism Development 

The state has some designated sites for eco-tourism development.  These sites are located at Arakanga near Abeokuta, Area J4 – Omo Forest Reserve and Imeko.  The sites are ideal for Games reserves, Zoological and

Botanical gardens etc. If developed, they have high potentialities to attract foreign visitors thereby generating the much needed foreign exchange.  This is a good business opportunity for the would-be investors.

 

Wood Processing and Allied Industries

There are investment and business opportunities in the wood processing and allied industries.  These include:

Establishment of sawmills.

At present, the State has a little over 300 registered sawmills.  Ogun State, being one of the largest producers of wood and wood products can still accommodate more sawmills and wood conversion/processing outfit.

Establishment of Carpentry/Furniture workshops

Ogun State is the home of assorted wood materials suitable for furniture raw materials etc.  Our investors could take full advantage of these vital raw materials.

Production of pulpwood and paper.

Ogun State has the largest Gmelina plantation in the country.  This is an important raw material for paper and pulpwood industry.  Investors are advised to make use of this unique opportunity.

 

Mulberry Plantation/Sericulture

Silk and silk materials are obtained primarily through the rearing of silk worms (sericulture).  With the high demand for silk products internationally, this area is no doubt a promising investment opportunity. Ogun State is ecologically suitable for the production of mulberry which is a vital food material for the silk worms.

 

Snail Production

Snails are good delicacies in the catering industry.  Snails are also good export products.  There are ample opportunities for the investors in snail production and processing.

 

Honey Production

Honey and honey materials are becoming more important in the international markets.  This is due partly to the importance of these products in the pharmaceutical industry.  The state has a comparative advantage in honey production.

 

Mushroom Production

This is a Non-Timber Forest Product (NTFP) which is a good source of food for the teeming population.  The would-be investors should take the advantage of our suitable climatic and ecological factors for mushroom production and canning for export.

Conclusion

The private sector driven economic policy of the present administration in Ogun State has led to a policy shift towards the private sector. To further consolidate our past achievements, concerted efforts are on to create a conducive and enabling business environment for investors.

Similarly, part of the strategies to achieve aggressive Afforestation is the involvement and encouragement of schools, communities and individuals to raise forest plots on their idle lands. As an incentive, tree seedlings were sold to them at reduced rates and at times distributed to the public at no cost.

This clarion call to all and sundry to imbibe the culture of tree planting is a way of reducing the mitigating effect of climate change. With these efforts, there is no doubt the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals on Environment Sustainability would be achieved.

Ogun State Agro-Services Corporation hereafter refers to as ASC was established by law in April 1980 as an autonomous Agency charged with the responsibility of procurement and distribution of agricultural farm inputs such as fertilizers, agro-chemicals, improved seeds and seedlings as well as tractor-services and heavy equipment/land clearing services to farmers in the State.

In April, 1984, two other government agencies were merged with it. These agencies were:

1. The defunct Ogun State Agricultural and Cooperative Credit Corporation (ACCC), Igbogila, providing agricultural credit to farmers; and

2. The former Petra Plants Services Limited, Ikeja, Lagos, providing Heavy Equipment Hiring Services.

 The functions of ASC became enlarged to include agricultural credit services. Also, in May 1996, the Engineering Services unit of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development was merged with ASC by the State Government to strengthen the Corporation’s Engineering Services. In the same month of May 1996, the Heavy Equipment Hiring Unit (HEHU) of the Corporation established at Ota took off fully with complimentary staff under it. All these mergers by the State Government were done with a view to reducing overhead costs, removal of duplication of functions as well as to provide agricultural inputs and mechanization services to farmers in a packaged form at the right time and reasonable rates through the Corporation.

The activities of the Corporation are as stated below:

Agricultural Land Clearing & Hiring Unit;

Agricultural Land Preparation through Tractor Hiring Unit;

Fertilizer Procurement and Distribution;

Agro-Chemicals Procurement and Distribution;

Improved Seeds/Seedlings Procurement and Distribution;

Fabrication of Tractor parts and Equipment.

The Ogun State Printing Corporation emanated from the defunct Government Press which was the Printing Division of the Ministry of Information, Sports and Social Welfare, Ogun State. The Ministry of Information and its Printing Division evolved as a result of the  Creation of States in 1976 during which Ogun State was created.

It started functioning on 17th January, 1977 with staff strength of 124 deployed from the Government Press, Ibadan and mainly responsible for Govern­ment printing jobs. Its objective was to service the Ogun State Government in its printing assignments. The Government was  directly responsible for Capital and Recurrent Expenditure as substantial funds were provided every year by the Government.

In February, 1984 the Ogun State Military Governor, Brigadier Oladipo Diya, signified his intention to make some establishments commercially oriented and self-supporting without Government subventions. As a result of this decision of the Government, the Printing Division of the Ministry of Information became one of the establishments that should be run on commercial basis.

In May 1984 the State Military Governor, Brigadier Oladipo Diya re-structured the Printing Division to become Ogun State Printing Corpora­tion. The objectives of the establishment dramatically changed from service oriented to commercial oriented. On 1st August, 1984 the Ogun State Printing Corporation became established under the “Ogun State Printing Corporation Edict No. 4 of 1985”.

The main objective of the Corporation became profit making. The functions of the Corporation were clearly spelt out in the Edict establishing it.

OGUN STATE PARKS AND GARAGES DEVELOPMENT BOARD (PAGADEB)

ADDRESS:1st Floor, OGBC Complex, Ibara Housing Estate, Ibara, Abeokuta

The Agency called Ogun State Parks and Garages Development Board was established on 20th March, 2004 during the administration of Otunba Gbenga Daniel, the former Executive Governor of Ogun State. While the pioneer General Manager of the Board was late Mr. Kola Bankole, (RIP) took over the leadership mantle of Parks and Garages Development Board in the year 2004 and exited in the year 2008. Between 2008 and 2011 Rev. John Oyeyemi took over as the General Manger of the Board followed by the present General Manager Alh. Ayo Ogunsolu who has been in charge of the Board since 2011 till date. The establishment of the Board was necessitated as a result of the incessant clashes of transport unions across the state with its attendant crisis among the transport unions resulting into breakdown of law and order as well as constituting public disturbance in the state.

The Ogun State Parks and Garages Development Board as the name implies is saddled with the responsibility of regulating the activities of transport unions like the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN), Tricycle Owners and Riders Association of Nigeria (TORAN), Amalgamated Commercial Motorcycles Owners and Riders Association of Nigeria (ACCOMORAN), Articulate Motorcycle Owners and Riders Association of Nigeria (AMORAN) etc, establishment and maintenance of parks and garages in Ogun State, accreditation of transport unions, conflict resolution  is one of the  pivotal roles played by PAGADEB, generation of revenue to Ogun State Government to mention but a few.

To this end, the Board has received enormous support from the present administration of His Excellency Senator Ibikunle Amosun (fca) to succeed. The present management of the Board headed by our amiable Alh. Ayo Ogunsolu, the General Manager of PAGADEB is also a round peg in a round hole, under whose leadership the Board is making a giant stride, not forgetting the past General Managers who had held sway in the Agency in the past.
