State of Osun to send 50 graduates to Germany




Nigeria’s state of Osun has concluded plans to send no fewer than 50 members of the state’s Youth Empowerment Scheme (OYES), who are graduates, on a trip to Germany where they will be trained in mechanised farming for 18 months.

The Coordinator of the scheme in the state in Western Nigeria, Mr Eniibukun Oyewole, disclosed this on Thursday in Osogbo.

Oyewole said the gesture was aimed at giving adequate and qualitative training to the youths to enable them to practise mechanised farming.

“The beneficiaries will be able to train other youths when they return and put into practice farming skills that will boost food production in the state and the country at large,’’ he stated.

He further said that the overseas training was to motivate and encourage youths in the practice of agriculture that had become unpopular.

On the selection of the participants, Oyewole stated that only degree and HND holders in agriculture-related courses were selected for the training.

He said the state government in the last two years had sponsored some youths in batches to Cuba and India for overseas training in different vocations.


“The present administration in the state is working toward empowering every youth in all the nook and crannies of the state so that the society will be free of social vices associated with unemploymen,’’ he said.

Oyewole said preparations for the take off of the beneficiaries to Germany had been concluded while the training would commence in early 2013

The Title should have read:

''Osun to send the relatives and acquaintances of its Public Officers. . . .''


The people deserving of these schemes end up never going anywhere! RIVERSTATE is a typical example. #Pathetic#

Re: State Of Osun To Send 50 Graduates To Germany by anonimi: 7:55am On Dec 21, 2012
Is this the best way to spend Osun tax payers money
Would it not have been more productive to set up one or two training centres in Osun state with the money to train thousands of youth
Is Germany the best place for Osun people to learn mechanised farming
Are there no mechanised farming training centres in Nigeria or other African countries
Is this how to build on the late Chief Obafemi Awolowo legacy on rural agricultural transformation over 60 years ago

Colo-mentality !!!

If this training will achieve the desired result then it's a welcome development.
Re: State Of Osun To Send 50 Graduates To Germany by JimmyBoy1: 8:41am On Dec 21, 2012
While I belive 90% of the beneficiaries most be relatives and cronies of those in power, I believe the knowledge acquired will still do a lot of good for the state, provided it is properly harnessed.

do you know how much it cost to accommodate, cloth, feed and train a candidate in Western Europe for 18months?

I think they should be trained in Africa or Asia. In Europe, a visit to big stores would reveal that most of their food products(excluding dairies) are sourced from farms in Africa & Asia.
Wetin dem wan go learn for Germany, how to drive tractors? as Germany does not have a cassava or yam field. It's a temperate region.

So you did not read the OYES man say they are going to Germany to learn mechanised FARMING
That is the production of food from farms with the aid of machines NOT the processing of the output of such mechanised FARMS.
The processing is the realm of agro-allied industries. Get it
