Governor Willie Obiano would soon flag-off distribution of seedlings, tractors among other farm implements to farmers in the state with a view to empowering them to key into his administration blueprint on making the state food basket of the nation.
State Commissioner of Agriculture, Chief Nnamdi Mekoh, who disclosed this while receiving executive members of Self Youths Empowerment Organization (SIYEO) who paid him courtesy call today, added that over 250 youths of the state would start training at different field of agriculture next week.
According to Mekoh, the Agricultural skill acquisition training would focus on fish farming, cassava production, animal production, crops production and processing among others.
He said the training would commence at Anambra State College of Agriculture, Mgbakwu, next week and successful trainees are qualified to receive kick-off capitals among other logistics in accordance to their areas of concentrations.
Chief Mekoh further enjoined Anambrarians to avail themselves the opportunity as the incumbent administration was determined to empower his citizenries to be self-sufficient and employer of labours rather than jobseekers.
Responding, National President of SIYEO, Prophet Favour Okwudili assured Governor Obiano that the group was ready to mobilize all people of the state to participate on the initiative.
While the State Chairman of SIYEO, Chief Ignatus Okeke said the programme if actualized, would assist in total eradication of poverty, restiveness and begging of alms in Anambra state.
