Still on 'development in Idomaland'

Otukpo Rice Mill

This is Otukpo Rice Mill. In the 60s, it was adjudged the largest rice mill in the whole West Africa. Ironically, it is now about the worst in Nigeria in terms of infrastructure. Even at its dilapidated state, Otukpo Rice Mill is still functional. There are people inside this building milling and processing local rice which is believed to have more nutrients than the foreign rice.

In your own opinion, what do you think can be done to resuscitate this industry in Idomaland?  Constructive comments shall be published on DayBreak Newspaper. Such comments should carry the full names of the contributors and should not be more than 100 words.
