The Ogun State Commissioner for Agriculture, Dr Adeola Odedina, represented by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Agriculture, Dr Dotun Sorunke, has charged extension officers in the State to play their role as the engine of agricultural transformation in the State. He gave this charge during the flag-off of the three-day workshop organized by IITA on Zero Hunger Project in collaboration with International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) funded Value Chain Development Programme (VCDP) for Extension Agents at Ogun Tech Hub, Kobape Road, Abeokuta, Ogun State in August.
According to the Commissioner, knowledge of good agricultural practices (GAP) is foundational to good production. He advised the extension agents (EAs) to pay attention to all the training sessions to ensure that they transmit the knowledge to the cassava farmers in the State.
