In line with efforts to ensure food security in Nigeria, the Lagos State Agricultural Empowerment Training Scheme has revealed that over two million people would be trained in the South West geo-political zone of the country.
This revelation was made by the Project Director of the scheme Oluwaseyi Bamigbade during an interaction with journalists in Lagos.
Bamigbade informed that the training enable the participants to deepen their knowledge in agriculture in areas such as soilless vegetable production, cassava, wheat and rice processing, including marketing techniques both locally and internationally.
He added that would enable the participants to requisite knowledge needed in rearing domestic animals and catfish production.
While presenting certificates to 225 residents beneficiaries from the training, the director stressed that there was no way people can practice productive agriculture without cognate experience on modern farming and training.
Bamigbade noted that the training currently held in Lagos would be replicated in all the South West states.
