LASG URGES WORLD BANK TO EXTEND APPEALS PROJECT, PRESENTS COMPENSATION CHEQUES TO BENEFICIARIES OVER FARM PRODUCE LOSS ®™√ INN Nigeria ©

fb img 16690795487915195693819984856956 Following the positive impact of the Agro-processing, Productivity Enhancement and Livelihood Improvement Support (APPEALS) Project on farmers' productivity in the State, Lagos State Government has appealed to the World Bank for an extension of the project.
The request was made by the Lagos State Commissioner for Agriculture, Abisola Olusanya, who disclosed that APPEALS Project in the State has empowered about 8,000 farmers, especially women and youths in the last five years. Olusanya called for an extension of the APPEALS Project programme when World Bank and APPEALS Project representatives who were in Lagos for the 9th Implementation Support Mission to Lagos paid her a courtesy visit on Monday. APPEALS project is a Lagos State and World Bank-assisted project in conjunction with the Federal Government aimed at enhancing the agricultural productivity of small and medium-scale farmers and improving value addition along priority value chains - Poultry, Aquaculture and Rice under the Lagos APPEALS project.
Speaking during the courtesy visit, the Commissioner assured World Bank and APPEALS Project National Coordinating Office representatives that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and the Lagos State Government are ready to cooperate and do the needful for more farmers to benefit from the project if extended beyond the September 2023 deadline.
Olusanya during the visit also presented cheques to five farmers, who are Women and Youths Empowerment Programme beneficiaries as insurance benefits over the recent loss in their poultry farm as a result of Avian influenza, which led to the death of their birds. The five beneficiaries – Hameed Osiyemi, Yahya Mohammed, David Christiana, Moromoke Olanrewaju and Omolara Ojo, were given between N50,000 and N210,000 as insurance benefits by the First Adequate Benefits Insurance Brokers Limited. The Commissioner commended the Lagos State APPEALS Project, saying that the project has made the most impact compared to previous agricultural projects and programmes.
She said: “The State Project Coordinator (Mrs Oluranti Sagoe-Oviebo) and her team members have handled the APPEALS project in the last five years. The APPEALS Project team is one of the best groups of people that we actually have coordinating this project statewide and with regard to the impact the project itself has made, I will say it is second to none.
“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 MDAs 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 and if you don't want to continue it nationally, you can just continue and look at Lagos State as a special project. I think Lagos deserves a special intervention because the team handling this project truth be told is still one of the best.
“We want to thank you (World Bank and APPEALS National Coordinating Office) for being very supportive of the Lagos State APPEALS Project, hoping that we will continue to have the support from now till the end of the project and if there is a possibility of extending it, I want to assure you that the Lagos State government under Mr Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu is ready to cooperate.
“We are ready to serve the people. We are ready to do the needful according to the World Bank procedure and I can assure you that the impact that we all want to see is definitely what you will be assured of getting in Lagos State.”
Speaking during the courtesy visit, the Task Team Leader from World Bank, Dr Manievel Sene, commended the Lagos State Project Coordinator of APPEALS, Mrs Oluranti Sagoe-Oviebo, and her team for the job they have done so far, declaring that Lagos is among the leading states in Nigeria based on an overall overview of APPEALS Project.
He said the World Bank will look at another project to scale up the achievements of the APPEALS project. “We are on the same page on how we can look at another project to scale up the achievements of the APPEALS project. We are ready for a new project that will build on APPEALS.
“I think Lagos APPEALS is moving in the right direction. 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,” he said. Dr Sene commended the Lagos APPEALS collaboration with an insurance company, adding that the initiative would be scaled up and encouraged in the new project by the World Bank for farmers' productivity.
Sagoe-Oviebo said part of the support the Lagos APPEALS project is doing is to ensure that beneficiaries are insured and that is why the project collaborated with the insurance company, noting that those who received cheques during the courtesy visit are parts of the Women and Youths Empowerment Programme beneficiaries from Epe axis of Lagos State.
The visit was part of the five-day event of the APPEALS Project 9th Implementation Support Mission of the World Bank and the Federal Government of Nigeria to Lagos State. The main objective of the mission is to assess the project's overall implementation status and ensure the successful completion of the project action plan developed during the 8th mission visit.
The National Project Coordinator of APPEALS Project, Mr Mohammed Jobdi and participants from the other five Implementing States of Cross-River, Enugu, Kaduna, Kano and Kogi led by their State Project Coordinators were also present at the event.

Following the positive impact of the Agro-processing, Productivity Enhancement and Livelihood Improvement Support (APPEALS) Project on farmers’ productivity in the State, Lagos State Government has appealed to the World Bank for an extension of the project. The request was made by the

NOLLYWOOD ACTORS DECLARED SUPPORT FOR TINUBU, MET OBASA ®™√ INN Nigeria ©

4848j4n4n3246944995070408424 Speaker Mudashiru Obasa of the Lagos State House of Assembly has urged Nollywood actors, producers and entertainers of like minds not to relent in their efforts to ensure victory for Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 election.
Dr. Obasa gave the charge when he received a group, Progressive Coalition of Entertainers, led by popular actor, Saheed Balogun, at the Assembly complex late Thursday.
The Speaker, who thanked the group of social influencers for their efforts to ensure a successful presidential election victory for Tinubu, further tasked them to sustain the relationship that exists between them and the state government.
"Our task is to involve people, enlighten them and make them see reasons why they should continue, particularly here in Lagos, to support the APC. They have always supported APC and we want them to continue.
"To us, every vote is an investment because every single vote counts," Obasa said while commending the group for assisting in mobilising and enlightening the electorate.
The Speaker advised the group not to take to social media violence, but instead embrace dialogue, truthful analysis and explanations in the course of the members' activities.
He described social media as a platform to meet and intimate the youth on the workings of government, which some may not be aware of.
"For example, while some young people on social media decry unavailability of sufficient school chairs in primary schools, the government already projected for enough chairs for anticipated school children and is overwhelmed with the influx of more people to Lagos State, a number that can never be determined," he said adding that this applies to all sectors of the state.
Speaking earlier, Balogun said the group of over 60 celebrities decided to come together to endorse and preach Tinubu to the people because of how he turned Lagos into what is today a smart city.
Balogun noted that Tinubu laid the foundation that successive governments latched on to put Lagos in an enviable position among states.
Outlining some of the group's activities, the actor said they hope to influence thoughts on social media, carry out door-to-door engagements and organise a town-hall meeting.
He noted that since as artistes, they have a large following on social media, they see an opportunity to reach out and engage prospective voters.
He described Asiwaju Tinubu as one who had done a lot to qualify him as the next president of Nigeria adding that they hope to continue to release the presidential candidate's achievements.
"Asiwaju has done well and it is time to pay back. Every successive government continues to build on his foundation," he said.
He also described the Lagos State House of Assembly as the best in the country both in structure and legislative activities.

IKORODU PECULIAR LIONS CLUB TAKES FEEDING THE HUNGRY PROJECT TO SABO AXIS IN IKORODU ®™√ INN Nigeria ©

788ihgt5587236417519383942 In the early hours of Monday the 17th of October 2022, members of Ikorodu peculiar lions club were seen around the Sabo axis in Ikorodu.
Led by the club president, Lion Akinosho David, the club wasted no time engaging freelance job-seeking individuals with breakfast to fast-track their daily activities. Feeding the hungry is a special scheme committed by lions club to lessen the level of starvation around the community, by delivering welfare packages for inhabitants.
It is carefully implemented after voluntary members of the club carry out a need assessment around the specific vicinity, considering the area fit to effect the undertaking solely as an aid to humanity.
Stipulated in line with the club's annual program, the endeavour squarely targets the less privileged individuals, putting hope and joy in their countenance.
Speaking to the club's project coordinator, Lion Kayode Aluko, Ikorodu News Network (INN) gathered that the newly established club arranged to coalesce at a spot where job seekers always hang out.
Lion Aluko continued, "A lot of people you see going to work, move without anything in their stomach, believing that whatever they realise during the day would be used to feed themselves, that's why we came out this early to cater to them".
"My personal belief is that the Government cannot do it all alone, whatever we can do as a people to touch lives in our near environment should be cultivated as a habit for change".
"We know that executing a project like this from our widow's mite would motivate others who can do the same thing to be lifted for emulation reasons".
Lion Aluko asserted that the course is done openly to fascinate those who have the kind-hearted compassion of giving to come and join the newly created lions club.
