The Anambra State Project Monitoring Committee for the Rural Access and Agricultural Marketing Project, (RAAMP) has been inaugurated by the state’s Commissioner for Road construction, Furniture and Maintenance, Engineer Marcel Ifejiofor.
Our correspondent reports that the RAAMP-3 is a federal government initiative aimed at creating access on the rural state roads especially in agrarian communities.
The programme was established in September 2016 and became operational in October 2017 in the state with financial support from World French Development Bank and African Development Bank.
The initiative was a successor to the second Rural Access and Agricultural Marketing Project which also succeeded RAAMP-I and has the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development as the lead agency.
Engineer Ifejiofor expressed happiness that such project is being actualized during his time as he said that the programme will reduce the stress farmers go through to evacuate their farm produce.
Earlier, the State Project Coordinator, Engineer Joseph Onyejekwe, announced that the state government paid N100million as the first tranche of the counterpart funds which is eight percent of the total.
