Episode 70 of the SERVICOM help desk Radio programme held on the 29th May, 2019. The Episode was a continuation of the previous day’s session which featured the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development. The SERVICOM Public Awareness Manager Ms. Patience Musa was in the studio with representatives of the Ministry.
The Director in charge of Agribusiness in the Ministry, Mr. Azeez Misbau Olumuyiwa who was very appreciative of the programme said one of the ways that brekete family can help a lot of people is through Agriculture.
He explained that there are lots of opportunities in the sector that are unknown, adding that people erroneously think that Agriculture is all about farming whereas it goes beyond that as it involves all activities that start from the farm till the farm produce gets to the mouth.
“There are people whose businesses are registered to help people farm, if you have N100,000 you can give them and sign in, at the end they give you your money with interest from the farming”, he said.
A Deputy Director for Extension Services in the Ministry Mr. Dele Olorunfemi encouraged Nigerian Youths to log on to the N-Power e-platform of the federal Government and register under the agro segment to key into the available opportunities there.
The Ordinary President magnanimously offered the Ministry of Agriculture free 30 minutes airtime every Saturday during the Brekete programme for more enlightenment on their activities and programmes.
The SERVICOM Nodal Office for the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development Mrs. Gertrude Orji was also in attendance at the SERVICOM Help Desk Radio Programme.
