Edo rolls out red carpet for agripreneurs



Are you an agripreneur? If yes, your next call should be to the Edo State Ministry of Agriculture where officials are daily screening applicants who intend to participate in the government’s ongoing agripreneural initiative.

Report says officials of the Ministry of Agriculture have been playing host to interested people, who are being screened to participate in the next batch.

A statement from the Office of the Chief Press Secretary to the governor indicates that, the state government was determined to make sure food supply was reliable and safe, hence its initiative to encourage and engage citizens in entrepreneurship through agribusiness.

“The idea is to engage and feed the lower class and the hoi polloi as well as the rapidly growing middle class to make them millionaires. Governor Godwin Obaseki’s talk on this initiative has been encouraging to peasant and middle class farmers”, his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. John Mayaki said.

However, a scheme has also been put in place to eliminate instances of fraudulent applications.
