The Lagos State Government has embarked on the training of youths and women on commercial Coconut Oil processing at the Farm Service Centre, Oko-Oba, Agege as part of efforts towards Making Lagos State a 21st Century Economy.
In his address at the commencement of the training programme recently, the General Manager, Lagos State Coconut Development Authority, LASCODA, Mr Dapo Olakulehin stated that the exercise is geared towards empowering youths in Lagos State to become self-independent by becoming Agropreneurs, which will ultimately engender economic growth.
He commended Governor Sanwo-Olu for creating a process that encourages capacity building programmes for youths and women to contribute significantly towards achieving one of the goals of the T.H.E.M.E.S Agenda.
Olakulehin reiterated the efforts of the government to open up the coconut sub-sector of agriculture for investments because different products extracted from coconut are viable, noting that the participants for the first batch were drawn from different Local Governments and Local Council Development Areas across the State.
Mr Joseph Sapo, one of the participants at the training programme, thanked the State Government for giving them the opportunity to be trained on how to be self-reliant and productive members of society.
