When Premium Times and NIRSAL Discussed How To Fix Nigeria's Agricultural Value Chain

 Yesterday, Monday Nov.27, I was a rapporteur for this Agriculture summit by Premium Times Centre for Investigative Journalism and NIRSAL. NIRSAL is The Nigeria Incentive-based Risk sharing System for Agricultural Lending and is an agency of the central bank of Nigeria.


The event which held at the Shehu Musa Yar adua centre was attended by operators, government, and stakeholders of the Agricultural sector and
had speakers such as Mr. Dapo Olorunyomi, (Premium Times boss), Prof. Babagana Abba Gambo, Mr. Aliyu Abdulhammeed (CEO, NIRSAL), Dr Tobi Oluwatobi, Ronke Eko-Aderinoye (CEO, AfriHuB), Austine maduka, Sanusi Maijama'a Ajiya, and Asma Begum Mirza.


The event provided opportunity to understand the challenges in the Agricultural sector, set the ball rolling on mitigating the challenges and the risks with the NIRSAL's intervention.

The NIRSAL CEO, I must say understands the sector and particularly how best to make Agriculture attractive to the young people with integrated approach on development and more. Prof. Babagana also showed a detailed survey that tells our potentials with Agricultural wealth as a country. Thanks to the panelists that also shared their industry hands-on experience. 

This blogger called Jenny Chisom, learnt a whole lot.

NIRSAL is a great boom to the economy and you should keep an eye on them. Premium times has shown leadership in investigative journalism through its Development organisational arm Premium Times Centre for Investigative Journalism.

Let me go finish up my report for submission.

Why Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme Resigned From House on the Rock Church in Abuja

I have been in pains!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice, I put up my pastor and coach's picture last weekend because I was heart broken.
He is Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme, the outgone (as much as I hate to use that) resident pastor of my local assembly in Abuja. I and all those who knows him, are going to miss him soooooooo much, it hurts.

Jenny Chisom's 12 Codes of Conduct for Men That Rivals Any Male Code

It's been a tough past week so I am grateful for Sunday heralding a new week.
I have been burdened to create a Code of Conduct for members of the League of Extraordinary Men (LExM) on Facebook. So while I couldn't attend service, I sat down and wrote this down on my note pad, then typed it.
This came in a bid to begin to restructure the group to ensure it is serving the right purpose and the right men.
