Lagos – Prospective farmers, who desire to own farmlands, now have a unique opportunity to do so, so says the management of Extralarge Farms Limited, which said it has acquired 6,000 acres of land in Ogun State, South-West Nigeria.
The company said such farmers, who would be given various incentives, including training on how to grow and make money from organic agricultural products like plantain, cassava and rice, should visit its corporate office located at 69, Business Palace, Ijaiye-Ojokoro, Lagos State or visit www.xtralarge farms.com, for registration and other necessary information.
According to a statement by Mrs. Abosede Oyibokure, one of the Xtralarge Farms’ governors, registered farmers would own a minimum of one plot and maximum of 12 plots.
She said: “After four years of operating the farm, the farmer can either take over the land for further cultivation either by him/herself; or on his behalf by Xtralarge farms; and before the expiration of four years, he/she would be paid N90, 0000.00 per year for three years.”
The statement said the overall objective of the firm, whose philosophy is hinged on integrity and transparency, is “to raise new generations of passionate farmers.”
Oyibokure, popularly called ‘Mama Dubai’ by her admirers, said in the statement that, “The investment is worth it because it offers you opportunities for self- employment, personal growth and poverty banishment.”
She said “Buyers have nothing to worry about because the usual challenge posed by ‘Omo Oniles’ does not exist in our own case, while the entrepreneur would continue to smile to the banks through bountiful harvest and robust returns on investment.”
