As part of efforts aimed at enhancing agricultural productivity and boosting the larger economy of the country, AgroNigeria, the Voice of Nigeria’s agriculture, is organizing the Feed Nigeria Summit and the Nigeria Agriculture Awards between July 30th and 31st 2018 at Sheraton Hotel, Abuja.
The summit, tagged “Consolidating the growth” is geared towards facilitating strategic engagement between the private and public sector, as well as other critical stakeholders in the agricultural sector to hatch homegrown solutions to challenges confronting the nation’s agriculture.
Accordingly, this year’s convocation provides a distinctive platform for stakeholders to track and enhance Nigeria’s race towards self-sufficiency in agricultural production. This is informed by the need to appraise advancements so far recorded in the sector, while beaming a searchlight on frameworks for sustainability.
In addition, the summit which is supported by the African Development Bank (AfDB), Triton Group, Stallion Group, Notore Plc, Flour Mills of Nigeria (FMN), Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition, Fullmark and other stakeholders in the agricultural sector, also seeks to address key national agricultural productivity issues like finance, market access, research, infrastructure, mechanization, ICT, youth and gender as well as apposite policies and legislation.
On the other hand, the Nigeria Agriculture Awards is designed to celebrate individuals who have contributed immensely to the development of the Nigerian agricultural sector, across varied value chains.
Since it was initiated in 2014, the Nigeria Agriculture Awards has been adjudged the unrivalled platform for celebrating excellence in the Nigerian agro-allied sphere.
The Awards has also introduced a Youth Segment tagged the “The Nigeria Agriculture Awards Youth Project and Essay Competition” for corps members across the country, as well as students in Secondary and Tertiary institutions. This is aimed at raising a generation of agric-savvy youths with the wherewithal to trigger an agriculture revolution in Nigeria and ultimately economic emancipation for the country.
