N94M DISBURSED TO 258 UNEMPLOYED GRADUATES IN ONDO – FADAMA

The Fadama lll AF Project in Ondo State says it has disbursed about N94 millon to no fewer than 258 unemployed graduates under the Fadama Graduate Unemployed Youth/Women Scheme project(Fadama GUYS).

Mr Adebayo Ogidan, state Project Engineer and Desk Officer for Fadama GUYS, made the disclosure on Friday in Akure during a visit to farms of some beneficiaries.

Ogidan, who explained that the beneficiaries cut across the 18 Local Government Areas of the state, said that FADAMA was able to achieve the feat because the Oluwarotimi Akeredolu-led government paid the counterpart funds for Fadama lll AF project.

According to him, Ondo State is one of the 21 in the country that benefited under the Fadama GUYS programme, adding “the grant is from World Bank through the National Fadama AF project”.

He explained that the scheme started in 2017 and about 300 unemployed graduates were trained in three centres across the state.

The centres were the Federal University of Technology, Akure, Federal College of Agriculture, Akure and Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko.
