To revive past irrigation schemes the county government is setting up infrastructure for Seventy (70) acres farm in Malkadaka, two hundred (200) acres in Bulesa, and twenty (20) acres in Ngaremara in order to begin irrigation farming.
“ I am glad our farmers are ready to take on farming as an alternative livelihood to help eradicate hunger in our County. Going forward, my administration will work tirelessly to cover more acres for crop farming as we promote innovative and opportunistic farming across all our wards,” Guyo said.
During Jamhuri day, the county boss marked 110 days since he was sworn Isiolo's third Governor.
On education, the county boss revealed that his administration has partnered with Direct-Aid Africa to sponsor fifty (50) of our youths in technical areas to study abroad.
“My administration aims to close the gap that exist in our human resource by training more of our youths in technical and professional courses like medicine, engineering and law among others,” Guyo said.
“It is my hope that in future, we will double this number to attain critical mass in different fields to boost our own human capital,” he added.
On peace and security, the Governor stated that Isiolo is finalising the recruitment of National Police Reservists across our County.
This is also part of the administration putting in place sustainable measures that will bring about lasting peace and security within and outside Isiolo's borders.
“We are working very closely and strategically with the national government, the office of the County Commissioner, and his team,” Guyo added.
Isiolo has also embarked on high-level engagement with the national government and neighboring counties in Samburu, Wajir, Garissa, Marsabit and Meru with a view to promote beneficial peace and peaceful co-existence along its borders.
Governor Guyo applauded his Deputy James Lowasa for reviving the previously failed health sector of Isiolo.
He stated that the health sector had received noticeable improvement evident in all the facilities, especially on how services are delivered to people.
“I wish to commend my able Deputy Governor, who is my principal assistant, for providing strong leadership in pushing the limits on this front,” Guyo said
“I also laud our medics and all other staff in the sector for the good work while appealing to them to continue doing more as our people deserve nothing but the best,” he added.
In addition, Governor, Guyo called for patients among residents as he continues to solve land issues and ownership.
‘ I humbly request you to remain patient as my administration will send an expert to the ground to listen to you and consolidate all the issues that needs to be addressed by National Land Commission to ensure review is done and you get deserving value for your land and properties,” he said.
Guyo also pledged to continuously engage the residents of Isiolo and other stakeholders as he works to better your lives and that of the next generation.
"As we all know, elections and campaigns are behind us now, it is time for development and service delivery to each and every citizen of this great county, my appeal to you therefore is we shun divisive politics and instead come together to promote unity and brotherhood as we are all Isiolo people and shall always remain so," he said.
