In collaboration with a German Corporation (GOOPA), Lagos State Agricultural Development has commenced entrepreneurship training and mentorship programmes for farmers towards the creation of business development opportunities.
The Programme Manager of LSADA, Dr Olamilekan Pereira-Sheteolu while speaking at the opening ceremony of the 10-Day training tagged “Pro-Poor Growth and Promotion of Employment in Nigeria”, described the training and retraining of farmers as a necessity for growth
He expressed his appreciation to GOOPA for partnering with LSADA in organising the training programme, stressing that Public-Private Partnership is very important, as no government is financially buoyant to do things on its own.
However, Pereira-Sheteolu urged the participants to always seek support through relevant authorities if any problem is encountered during the training, assuring that assistance will be provided.
The Technical Coordinator of Capstone Educational and Investment Limited, Mrs. Abimbola Ojeifu, said the programme aims to train people on business development in the agricultural sector and enhance participants’ capabilities in the business environment
