To address food security concerns, technology and stimulate youth participation in agricultural production to promote sufficiency in food supply, the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) and the Lagos State Ministry of Agriculture, have called on economic managers to prioritise investment in the nation’s agribusiness value-chain.
This, they stated, would ensure that the value chain works effectively from farm to table while prioritizing the need for food security and food sufficiency in the country by involving youth participation to promote wealth and reduce social decadence.
Speaking at the 2021 LCCI Secondary School Essay Competition with the theme, ‘The Role of Agribusiness in Food Security and National Development’, the Commissioner for Agriculture Lagos State. Mrs. Abisola Olusanya charged youths on participation and involvement in agribusiness value-chain adding that this would create wealth and enhance better living standards of the economy.
