    Dr. Gabriel Osaheni Aghedo on Stakeholders Review Edo Rubber Industry.

    How terrific!!! I’m really elated that the current our excellent His Excellency Godwin Enogheghase Obaseki’s administration and many Edos (Edolites) are very zealous regarding heavy investment in the Agroforestry and Agriculture industries!!!

    Yes. Edo has always been regarded as Africa’s Rubber Headquarters even before this industry opened the Sakponba Rubber Hub in 1903!!! We’re really heading in the right direction!!! With unwavering faith, dogged determination and unyielding persistence, let’s go ahead and snatch the leading position from Malaysia, India and Thailand, and become the Number One Rubber Producing Place in the world!!! Yes, currently Edo is still the Number One Rubber Producer in Africa !!! Edo CAN and MUST from now onwards, become the Number One Rubber Producer in the world!!! Again, I humbly suggest that our mighty Edo State should join CIFOR (Center for International Forest Research), also establish annual CIFOR Games with Benin-City permanently hosting these games every; and with the games’ maiden edition commencing this year 2021 or early next year 2022 !!! The current CIFOR members are:- Indonesia, Vietnam, Ethiopia, Zambia, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Kenya, Peru, and Germany. Edo State should become the 10th member but the mightiest among the other nine members with regard to our wealthy Agroforestry: Rubber, Palm Oil, Timber, Cocoa, Coco nut, Palm Wine, Mango, Avocado Pears among many other Fruit Trees, variousMedicinal Trees, etc.

    Edo has always been the headquarters of Palm Oil production. Somehow, Malaysia and Indonesia pushed us backwards to become the 5th producer in the world. Our great Edo State is still the Number One Palm Oil producer in the world!!! The much better news is that, judging from the current enthusiasm of the Obaseki administration and many Edos (Edolites) in this field, Edo State will surely become the Number One Palm Oil producer in the world again, as soon as possible!!! Our great Governor Obaseki initiated APOI (African Palm Oil Initiative ) with the following being the ten members:- Cameroon, Central African Republic, Congo Brazaville, Congo Kinshasa, Gabon, Liberia, Ivory Coast, Ghana, and Edo State!!! Again, I humbly suggest that annual APOI Games should be established, with Benin-City permanently hosting these games every year, and with the maiden edition happening this year 2021 or early next year 2022 !!!

    Let’s pay tribute to a very great son of Edo State whose burial was celebrated on November 4th to 6th, 2021!!! Among his many great achievements as a Medical Doctor, Writer , Teacher ( the Nigerrian Leader Shonekan was one of his students at the oldest secondary school in Nigeria: CMS Grammar School in Lagos!) and Historian, he was also a Farmer who even earned an Inter-Bsc degree from the University of Ibadan!!! He is none other than Dr. Ekhaguosa Aisien, my beloved brother-in-law!!!
    May his soul Rest In Peace!!! Amen!!!

    Arise all ye Edos (Edolites), let’s MEGA: Make Edo Great Again!!!

    Win! Win! Win! Good luck, always!!!

    Dr. Gabriel Osaheni Aghedo, a Holistic/Medical Doctor resident in Tokyo, Japan.
