A statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Mr. Taiwo Adisa, indicated that the signing ceremony took place at the Government House, Agodi, Ibadan, the state capital. Speaking shortly after signing the bill into law, Governor Makinde said:

“I have just signed the law to make provision for the establishment, composition and powers of the Oyo State Agribusiness Agency and every other matter connected therewith. “Agribusiness is one of the cardinal programmes of this administration and what we have done today is to give a legal backing to Oyo State Agribusiness Development Agency.”
