Interns participating in training monthly agricultural enterprises in Umuahia, the capital of the state of Abia, for 150 ex-agitators from the Nigerian delta, called for an extension of the deadline for future beneficiaries.
The training, the second of which was organized by the Presidential Amnesty Department, was conducted by the Abia Agricultural Development Program (ADP) in conjunction with Fadmobat Investment Ltd.
The trainees were trained in subsidiary farms, poultry farming, fisheries, aquaculture, accounting / accounting, personnel management, marketing of agricultural products, among others, by experts.
The head of the ADP program, the head of Bato Onikemabi, told The Guardian after the long-awaited training session that participants showed great interest in learning, especially in the pigsty, poultry farming and aquaculture.
The training coordinator at Fadmodat Ltd, Mr. George Ogbonna, expressed satisfaction that, despite the greater number of participants in this second installment, the training was successful.
"This was because we feared a possible crisis because of their large number.
But they remained calm, cooperative and determined to learn, even during lectures on agriculture, which, it seems, did not interest.
They were more interested in livestock, aquaculture, and not in areas related to the plant, "he said.
In his speech, a representative of trainees Abraham Ebiekkon from Bayes State described the training as interesting, exciting and successful.
