Nigeria:Ugwuanyi sends second batch of 260 Enugu youths to Keffi for agric training

Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi’s administration has sent another batch of 260 youths selected from the 17 local councils of Enugu State, who have a passion for farming, including Reverend Sisters, to Keffi, Nasarawa State, for a two-week agricultural training at CSS Global Farms.

The first batch of 260 youths was successfully trained recently at CSS Global Farms, under the sponsorship of Ugwuanyi’s administration.  

Addressing the new participants before their departure for Nasarawa, yesterday, the Special Adviser to the governor on Agriculture, Michael Ogbuekwe, said Ugwuanyi was committed to his mission of producing “the next generation of agriculture businessmen and women in Enugu.”

Ogbuekwe added: The participants are the people that will go, acquire the skills, technology transfer, come back to Enugu and become influencers, innovators and people that will change the narratives in the agriculture sector of the state.

“The first set went and came back successfully and what we have seen is the need to keep training more and more people.

“Consequently, the governor decided to send a second batch of 260 youths for training, to learn food production, processing, packaging and marketing of agricultural products.”  

Meanwhile, in his goodwill message, the state Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rev. Emmanuel Ede, expressed gratitude to Ugwuanyi for his vision, benevolence, forthrightness, peace and good governance initiatives, and driving principles in empowering the people of the state.
