Group Urges Investment In Agric

1

Nigerian firms have been advised to invest more in agriculture.

The Managing Director of Patjeda Group, Joy Patrick, stated this at the celebration of the company’s 10th anniversary in Ikeja, Lagos, adding that Nigeria as a country should be able to feed its citizens.

She said the firm was diversifying into agriculture, focusing on poultry farming and crop cultivation, in line with the Federal Government’s policy of using agriculture to grow the economy and generate employment.

Parick said, “We started 10 years ago with car hire/leasing services, but we have expanded into other sectors, such as hotel and hospitality, guard/civil security, courier service, property development and youth empowerment.

“The diversification into agriculture is to help Nigeria to feed its citizens, and join efforts of the Federal Government to use agriculture to grow the economy, create wealth, and generate employments for the teeming population. We urge other organisations to join the efforts to get Nigeria out of recession by investing in agriculture.”

The managing director said the goal of the group was to produce agro products that would become household names.
