“By God's grace, our state will experience great rebirth in all ramifications. I will use the fresh anointing from God to pray for our dear state. The agricultural opportunities we found out in Israel, we will further explore to bring the sector back to the forefront," Fayose said.
He went to Israel alongside his counterparts from Benue and Plateau States among others as well as the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara.
Agriculture is a highly developed industry in Israel.
The country is a major exporter of fresh produce and a world-leader in agricultural technologies despite the fact that the geography is not naturally conducive to farming.
