Remember in my very first post ‘Who are the NextGenAfricanFarmers‘ I said that the NextGenAfricanFarmers should be educated. I’m doing just that :-). Academically my background is in Economics, Politics, Development and Planning. Professionally I’m a management accountant, when I landed a finance job after graduating I had to do the management accounting qualification exams a.k.a Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA). That’s like going to university all over again because it takes like 3 years, just that this time you are also working fulltime. Well the moral of the story is that I have no real Agriculture training :-). However I did it for 3 years during my secondary school education. Considering I’ve forgotten most of what I learnt, I’m not sure it counts.
On the 15th of July at exactly 10.15a.m I started a 10 weeks long course on How to start your business in agric business enterprises. The course is organised by the Lagos State Ministry of Agriculture and Co-operatives. The training is taking place at the Farm Service Centre, Oko-Oba, Agege, Lagos. The course will include training on poultry, pig production, rabbit and grass cutter production, fish farming, farm management, crop and coconut production. It cost ₦40,000 approx. US$248.
Stay tuned will be sharing my notes with you.
Thanks for stopping by :-)!
