In line with his self sufficiency agenda, Prince Akínrẹ̀mí Jagaban representing Ìbàdàn North Federal Constituency at the House of Representatives has facilitated capacity building programmes focused on cassava processing for his people.
These training programmes are set to teach and enhance the capacity of entrepreneurs in the aspect of agribusiness, ensuring they have the requisite skills needed to successfully convert cassava into various beneficial products.
100 participants divided into batches have been undergoing training at the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) in the last three weeks, while 75 participants will be trained by the Federal Institute of Industrial Research Oshodi (FIIRO) from today 22nd to Wednesday 25th Feb. 2021.
Interestingly, Hon. Olaide Akínrẹ̀mí has perfected plans to ensure each participant is empowered with start up capital to kickstart their individual agribusiness interests at the end of the capacity building training sessions.
The goal of facilitating these entrepreneurship programmes according to Hon. Akínrẹ̀mí Jagaban is to assist the beneficiaries in achieving financial independence and individual sustainability, with an overall effect on the economic growth of Ọ̀yọ́ state and Nigeria on the long run.
