The Nigeria Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development is yet to deliver 100 million farming equipment to Oyo community farmers despite 100% fund released for the purchase by the Federal Government.

The Agriculture Ministry in 2020 allocated the sum of N100 million to provide farming equipment for farmers in Erunmu Egbeda Local Government Area of Oyo state.
