The Role Modelling Event

Dr. Mrs. Blessing Okogbue says, there's a lot to be done to develop agriculture so as to make food available, affordable and create jobs to engage the jobless especially the restive youths and the rural people.
We need to think and approach Agriculture/Agribusiness from a multidisciplinary perspective and also raise Agro-based businessmen & women (Entrepreneurs) if we want to be self-sufficient.

Role Modelling Event of Dr. Mrs. B. C. Okogbue

As an AWARD fellow, Dr. Blessing has been empowered to influence, lead and bring about change. She is expected to impart her generation, share acquired knowledge and creative ideas to move the world/Nigeria forward via a forum. This the African Women in Agricultural Research & Development (AWARD) calls, a ROLE MODELLING EVENT.

She thinks Agriculture has been relegated in Nigeria for so long which has resulted to untold hardship for the citizens. She feels Agriculture should be given a good facial lift. Yes, the Minister of Agriculture, Dr. Adesina has done quite alot but she feels more should be done to boost agriculture in Nigeria.

She therefore calls for a forum to give a sensitization lecture she titled; "Think Agriculture". She believes all hands should be on deck and every profession on board for Agriculture to move to the next level.
She thinks Agriculture should be tackled from a Multidisciplinary perspective, where every professional creatively thinks on how to tailor his discipline to support agric. development. She is using this opportunity to invite you to participate at the event. Be there!!
