Social Media Week was a time to reflect on what we have collectively done to revolutionize the Agriculture sector in Nigeria leveraging technology and the theme of the session, “Agrictech for Profit in Emerging Markets” has been our central focus in the last couple of days since 2019 commenced.
More than ever before, we are reawakened to the realities of the numerous challenges plaguing our smallholder farmers with respect to insufficient market, post harvest losses, poor financing and our team is sold out to working with the numerous smallholder farmers within our network in Lagos, Abeokuta, Osun, Ibadan, Kano, Niger, Kogi, Ondo and more. We also welcome partnerships with innovators to address their peculiar issues, in a bid to boost food security.
We were also bothered about our youths and how many are wasting away in their prime. Of course, we redirected most youths present at the event to the opportunities in the Agriculture value chain but then, in the coming days, we will do more on this and we hope you’d join our train.
We will do more till we build an economic liberated youth network and of course a food secure Nigeria. Till then, please allow me to go back to work, lol.
Many thanks to our speakers, partners and the entire MyFarmbase Africateam, you guys rock.
