Osun Trains Youths In Agriculture To Reduce Hunger, Unemployment

The Government of the State of Osun has said that  the major reason for spending huge amount of money to train youths in agriculture within and outside the country is to change their attitude towards farming to reduce hunger, poverty and unemployment in the state.
Governor  Rauf Aregbesola of the State of Osun stated this on Tuesday December 3, 2013 while playing host to 20 youths who were sponsored on a three-month intensive training in modern Agriculture in Saxony-An halt, Germany by the State Government.
Aregbesola pointed out that modern technology and science had advantage of not only opening up enormous business opportunities in agriculture but would also create wealth for the farmer.
He called  on the beneficiaries  to begin to use their newly acquired knowledge to effect a radical transformation of agricultural practice and  see themselves as trainers in order to promote agriculture and abundant food production in the State.
The Governor appreciated the State of Saxony-An halt, Germany, for the robust collaboration with the State especially in the areas of training of medical personnel, infrastructural support for Ladoke Akintola University Teaching Teaching Hospital (LAUTECH) Osogbo and establishment of Soil and Food Laboratory in the State.
Some of the youths who spoke expressed appreciation to the State Government and promised to impact the knowledge they acquired during the training on other youths in the state to achieve desired results.
