IITA Youth Agripreneurs in collaboration with N2Africa on the 3rd of September, 2014 flagged off the 3-week intensive training for 20 youths from Borno State proposed few months ago, which seeks to build the capacity of the youths in agribusiness as an income generating activity.

The 3-week intensive training according to the IITA Youth Agripreneurs is expected to increase the knowledge of the Borno State youths in sustainable agronomic practices and develop their entrepreneurial skills in agribusiness, while promoting self-dependence. The IITA Agripreneurs revealed that the 3 weeks will also enable the possibility of replicating their model in Borno State which is one of the objectives of the group.

In attendance were the Head of IITA Kano Station, Dr Kamara, N2Africa Project Coordinator in Nigeria, Dr. Emmanuel Sangodele, Permanent secretary/Project manager, Agricultural Development Program (ADP) of Borno State, Alhaji Sani Aliu Meedugu, and Professor Emechebe, Plant Pathologist and Independent Plant Management Specialist and other IITA Kano staff stations.
