Also while addressing the correspondent of  Lasore Oladimeji Blog after the plenary, he said the Council has embarked on a search for suitable arable land that will be up to 90 hectares for the purpose of agricultural investment as recommended by the administration of the State of Osun under Governor Gboyega Oyetola. He said that the Council is looking outside its geographical jurisdiction because of its location in the urban area

He explained that the Council is prepared to partake in agricultural investment that will involve the participation of some unemployed youths of the LCDA which is why the governor has mandated the Local Governments and LCDAs to invest into agriculture as a means of generation revenue internally.
