    PROGRESSIVE N-POWER BUSINESS VENTURES FARM PROJECT COORDINATOR LAUDS FG ON THE BAN OF FOREX ON IMPORTATION OF FOOD ITEMS AND SOUGHT BETTER ENABLING ENVIRONMENT FOR LOCAL FARMERS TO GROW
    The Federal Government has been lauded on the recent ban of FOREX on importation of food items, especially those that thrives well on Nigerian soil. This accolade was expressed by Mr. Kabir Ishola Balogun, the State Coordinator of the Kwara N-Power Farm, operated under the registered business name ‘Progressive N-Power Business Ventures’ (PNBV), at the Commissioning Ceremony of the Progressive N-Power Business Ventures (PNBV) Farm held at the University of Ilorin auditorium on Wednesday, 28th August, 2019.

    While giving a historical background to the establishment of the farm during his Welcoming Speech, the Farm Coordinator/Chairman of the Organizing Committee noted that the PNBV began farm operation in the month of May, 2018 with two hectares of land piloted by seven investors who planted cassava, beans, maize and soybean but has now signed a ten-year (10) Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for 40-hectare farmland with the University of Ilorin. He informed the gathering that melon (egusi) & millet were planted in 2019 season in addition to the previous crops and hinted that PNBV will soon diversify into other areas of agriculture such as snail rearing, poultry, fishery, bee keeping, and food processing/value chains. He emphasized that the present investors in PNBV cut across 2016 & 2017 beneficiaries from all graduate categories of N-Power namely- N-Health, N-Teach, N-Tax and N-Agro.

    Mr. Balogun, a N-Health volunteer, further enjoyed other beneficiaries to embrace the investment opportunity in PNBV by simply investing a minimum of #30,000 which serves as a token preliminary commitment as government alone cannot provide job for all. He then appealed to all stakeholders, especially the Kwara State government to assist the group with a tractor, project vehicle, funds and other forms of support while also requesting to be a major supplier of the National Homegrown School Feeding Program in the state.

    The Host/N-Power Focal Person in Kwara State, Hajia (Dr) Habibat Katibi said N-Power has been able to reduce the rate of unemployment in the country. She noted that the beneficiaries succeeded in establishing the farm to be commissioned due to their singular effort and commitment. She then commended the organizers of the event as she noted that the agropreneurs put up a good impression of themselves.

    The Vice-Chancellor of University of Ilorin/Chairman of the Occasion, Prof. Sulyman Age Abdulkareem who was represented by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research, Technology and Innovation) Prof. Mikhail Olayinka Buhari said the University is blessed with about 15,000 hectares of land, which the institution is ready to put into use and partner with well meaning groups. He disclosed that the University had entered into partnership agreement with two different agricultural industries which will further make use of the University’s land.

    In his goodwill message, Mr. Olusegun Adeyemi, the State Director of National Orientation Agency, commended the efforts of the concerned N-Power beneficiaries for coming up with such a laudable initiative and thanked the management of the University of Ilorin for providing the 40 hectares of land and support for the success of the initiative. He then pleaded with the University authority to provide farm settlement for N-Power farmers operating on the University campus, to ease the access of the agropreneurs to the farm.

    Hajia Hafsat Olumo Yusuf who represented Senator Khairat Gwadabe while delivering her goodwill message, enjoined the agropreneurs to put in their best so as to sustain the ventures and keep exploring legitimate opportunities.

    Also speaking, Dr. Femi Ogunsola representing Sen. (Arch) Lola Ashiru, said the youth can achieve success with farming and advised them to communicate effectively for the overall success of the programme. He also urged the beneficiaries to explore their community network.

He added ‘‘We are now moving to the promised land. Plans are in place to implement pending SIP and also commence State level SIPs’’ He explained that the Federal Government is talking with the states with the aim of replicating NSIP in other states and was elated that Kwara State government is making moves to embrace it. He then expressed his delight with the agropreneurs who organized the commissioning ceremony for blazing the trail and setting the standard. He further said that Progressive N-Power Business Ventures (PNBV) Farm popularly known as Kwara N-Power Farm will be used as a model in the country stressing that the N-Power programme is a means to an end and way of positively engaging the Youth. He then encouraged beneficiaries of the programme in other states to borrow a leaf from their Kwara counterparts.

    The Executive Governor, Alhaji Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq who was represented by the Permanent Secretary, Kwara State Ministry of Agriculture, Alhaji Mohammed Katsina encouraged Youth to embrace farming and strive to be employers of labour. He noted that the event is critical to food security in the country and it projects the potential of Kwara State in the agricultural sector positively.
