Mr Governor, Babajide Olusola Sanwoolu, conceptualized the Lagos Agripreneurship Programme (LAP) as an intervention program aiming at creating jobs, reducing poverty, and assuring food security via training and empowering of women and youths in modern agricultural practices as Agripreneurs.
This is consistent with the Ministry of Agriculture’s roles in the State Government’s T.H.E.M.E.S. development plan, which include capacity building, wealth and employment generation, and ensuring food security, among other things.
