Written by thereachfm on March 6, 2019
The World Farmers Centre is embarking on a project aimed at raising 1000 millionaire farmers within the space of five years in line with its core value of encouraging Nigerian youths to embrace agriculture.
Speaking on the project in Lagos yesterday, the founder of Farmers’ Centre, Joseph Deji-Folutile, said the project would expose young Nigerian farmers to the different areas of investment in the agric sector, in order to broaden their perspectives.
According to him, there is a huge tendency for people to concentrate on a few aspects of the farming industry that are considered to be lucrative at the expense of other value chains that are equally important and which could yield better profits.
Deji-Folutile added that the Farmers’ Centre is embarking on the training series as part of its contributions to the development of the agric sector in Nigeria as a whole.
The World Farmers’ Centre was founded in 2017 to help provide solutions to the problem of hunger in the country through knowledge transfer to the people involved in different aspects of farming.
