The Candel Company Limited has rewarded farmers in the last stage of its Be A Millionaire Promo, derived from the Cleanfarms project.
The Managing Director, Emmanuel Kattie expressed that the promo was launched not only to keep the environment clean, safe and enhance farmers’ welfare, but also to create excitement, enhance productivity, efficiency and output for both farmers and trade partners.
“It’s a project designed to rid farms of herbicide bottles and remnants of agrochemicals that pose significant health hazards to the ecosystem,” he said.
Kattie said the promo which kicked off in May has rewarded 60 farmers with 48 generators and 12 Tricycles.
Winners of the grand finale draw for the generator sets and tricycles were selected electronically from the six-geo political zones in Nigeria while the N1,000,000 star prize was drawn randomly to give every farmer an equal chance.
Also speaking the Founder and Chairman of the Candel Limited, Charles Anudu said the company did the right thing by withdrawing the bottles from users.
“We saw people using the empty bottles to store water and other consumable things, which is harmful and we needed to destroy them because they are harmful to mankind.”
Anudu posited that the only way to enforce it is by asking the farmers to return the bottles and get cash reward.
