LASG Seeks Continuity of Farming Initiative For Mainlanders

INSIDEMAINLAND – Lagos State Government has appealed to the World Bank for an extension of the Agro-processing, Productivity Enhancement, and Livelihood Improvement Support, APPEALS, Project for farmers’ productivity in the state.

The State’s Commissioner for Agriculture, Abisola Olusanya, revealed this on Monday while visiting Lagos for the ninth implementation support mission with members from the World Bank and APPEALS Project.

Olusanya noted that the World Bank has been requested by the state administration to prolong the APPEALS initiative.

She said, “Over 8,000 youths and women have been trained and empowered based on field visits. The Lagos State APPEALS Project Coordinator is always pushing us. This team goes far and wide just to ensure implementation is done well. If there is also a team that I have seen a lot of integrity in, it is this particular team.

“We attend the state steering committee meetings with the deputy Governor and a few other stakeholders from other Ministries, Departments, and Agencies and generally speaking, APPEALS project is one of the seamless projects that the state has been able to run. I want to believe that if there is a possibility, this project should actually continue in all sincerity.”

The Task Team Leader from the World Bank, Dr. Manievel Sene, said, “Based on the information from the team, the project enjoyed strong support from Lagos State Governor and the state government, which is very encouraging. We are very satisfied with the level of implementation and achievements by the APPEALS Project in Lagos.”
