Abiodun To Empower More Youths Via Agriculture, Others - Lamide

 Governor Dapo Abiodun has promised to Empower more youths in the state using Agriculture, ICT and Skill Acquisition programs to make them self reliant.

He made this known through his Special Assistant on Youth and Sports, Comrade Olamide Lawal, in a radio interview in Abeokuta. 

Comrade Lawal said that thousands of youths have been empowered through the Anchor Borrowers program and the broiler scheme under the ministry of Agriculture. 

He added that efforts have been put into ensuring that Agriculture is lucrative enough to attract many youth across the state, with a ready market for agricultural products.

"The Governor has empowered over 10,000 young people through Agriculture with the unique scheme under Anchor borrowers program and broiler scheme. These programs are designed to attract youths to Agriculture as government is providing end-buyer of their produce". 

"With this motive, the youth are now attracted to Agriculture and the Governor deserves accolade for this kind of initiative", he noted.

He assured youth in the state that the governor is finalizing plans to set up Skill Acquisition Centers across the State which will empower the youth and make them self-dependent.

Comrade Lawal therefore advised the youth to take advantage of these opportunities by applying to be beneficiaries in the different empowerment programs that are ongoing and those that will be rolled out before the end of the first quarter in the year. 

The skill acquisition programs have been designed to include modern skills that will give the youth in Ogun State, the platform to compete globally.
