Nigeria: Group Trains 250 Graduates in Agribusiness

By Vincent A. Yusuf

A social enterprise and business consulting consortium, Andrew Bishopton Group is set at encouraging graduates to participate in developing and managing businesses in the agricultural sector which has been neglected by the youth.

To this end, the group organised an introductory seminar for 250 graduates, yesterday in Abuja.

The role of social entrepreneur in national economic transformation with focus on the investment opportunities in the agricultural sector was the focus of the meeting.

Jacqueline Ikeotuonye-Offiah, the programme coordinator said the event was an enterprise-based hands-on economic advancement and grassroots capacity building project aimed at creating multiple agriculturally centred investment opportunities and to encourage graduates to develop interest in the agricultural sector.

Ikeotuonye-Offiah lamented that Nigerian youth seem to have lost the ability to explore and discover hidden talents and potentials, adding that all eyes are on government to provide and create jobs for the youth.
