Two members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) have received four million Naira grant from the Federal Government for agribusiness.
The Executive Director, Nigerian Stored Products Research Institute (NSPRI), Dr Patricia Pessu, disclosed this Tuesday in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital, at the opening ceremony of programme for corps members on value addition of agricultural commodities.
She said the benefiting corps members were selected from the last batch of trainees of the institute, adding that “this similar opportunity awaits any trainee of this batch, who submits a promising proposal at the end of the service year.”
“This project we are doing now is being factored in our 2020 budget. It makes it possible for us to go ahead with it. But there are other projects coming up in 2021, which Nigerians at various levels will benefit from.”
