FOUNDATION FOR PARTNERSHIP INITIATIVES IN THE NIGER DELTA TASKS GOVERNMENT ON COCOA VALUE CHAIN TO REPLACE OIL

Foundation for Partnership Initiatives in the Niger Delta (PIND) has urged government at all levels and other development partners to utilise the economic potentials available in cocoa production to cushion the effect of global oil doom. http://www.tectono-business.com/2016/02/contemporary-step-by-step-guide-to.html

PIND Executive Director, Dr. Dara Akala, who said this at the cocoa value-chain study validation workshop in Akure, hinged the assurance on a recent analysis carried out on cocoa value chain in the country.

Dr. Akala noted that it is the tradition of the organisation in the Niger Delta region to gather stakeholders to validate the interesting findings from researches conducted into any area of focus.

Hmmm!!! Folks, let us say the truth and shame the devil. Many Nigerian non-oil products exporters have been defrauded of huge amount of money in the process of exporting agricultural commodities and solid minerals to foreign countries. Do you know why? They were not trained on export operations, management, documentations and the best methods of payment in export trade. This is terrible!!! Nigerians cannot continue to lose money to foreigners in the course of export business. Exporters, would you like to keep on being scammed? Why don’t you get a practical manual that explains the stages of export trade from processing and packaging of commodities to receipt of payment by the foreign buyers? It explains export operations, export management, export documentations and methods of payment in export trade? Yes, it is a contemporary step-by-step guide to export trade. It tells all the contemporary dynamics in export trade. To get it, click on the link below:

According to Dr. Akala, PIND initiated the cocoa value chain study to diagnose the cocoa sector with a view to understanding the structure of the industry in the Niger Delta.

The executive director said it is imperative for key stakeholders to take advantage of the increased market opportunities in the sector, identifying key value chains and conduct cocoa stakeholders’ mapping. http://www.tectono-business.com/2016/02/contemporary-step-by-step-guide-to.html

The PIND Market Development Projects Manager, James Elekwachi, who led the value chain study, said: ‘’Cocoa sector has the growth potential and the opportunity to increase income and employment for millions of people, especially the unskilled and semi-skilled in the region.”

Meanwhile, Ondo State Governor, Barrister Oluwarotimi Akeredolu (SAN), represented by his Senior Special Assistant on Agriculture and Agric Business, Pastor Akin Olotu, stated that the state government had embarked on several revolutionary measures to optimally utilise the cocoa potentials in the state for massive development.

Another group, under the auspices of Synergos Innovation Development Nigeria and Farmcrowdy and Civic Innovation Hub, has disclosed plan of integrating agriculture to technology to drive small farm holders and guarantee food security nationwide. http://www.tectono-business.com/2016/02/contemporary-step-by-step-guide-to.html

Synergos Innovation Development Nigeria was founded by the Bill and Melinda Gate Foundation (BMGF) with head office in the New York, focused on bridging the gap between technology and small farm holders across the country while Farmcrowdy is a model that connects investors with small farm holders.

The Developing Manager in Synergos, Philip Etim, told The newsmen in an interview that the entire programme is to bridge the gap between technology and small farmer holders. (Guardian)
