Agritech-Nigeria-Osun 2024: More Than 70Foreign Ambassadors, Global Investors To Storm Osun For Fresh Edition

In what looks like good news for the people of Nigeria and the government of Governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun State, the organiser of Agritech Nigeria has decided to bring the second edition of the International Agriculture Technology Exhibition and Investment Summit to Osogbo, the Osun state capital.

Agritech Nigeria is an international platform that combines investment and economic connection with exhibition to bring both local and foreign investors together and make available sustainable technology that can be used to drive agriculture development.

Agritech Nigeria trade mark is owned by Fesco Agalu Nigeria Limited, a company registered under Nigeria law in 1993.

The first edition tagged Agritech Nigeria Osun 2019, was held in Osun State from 26-28 March 2019, and it attracted no fewer than 23 accredited foreign ambassadors and high commissioners in Nigeria with local and foreign manufacturers and investors, United Nations agencies, Federal and state government agencies, ministries and departments in attendance, while over N18.5 billion business volumes exchanged hands and over 36,000 participants recorded across the world.

This newspaper learnt that in the build-up to the Agritech Nigeria Osun 2019, the organisers went to different countries in Europe, Asia and Africa for sensitisation of investors and participants.

Executive Director of Agritech Nigeria, Majeed Yahaya, said the event coming up in Osun State will be tagged Agritech Nigeria Osun 2024, adding that the reasons Osun State is chosen to host the world event could not be isolated from the fact that those investors and businessmen and women who attended the 2019 edition demanded that they wanted to complete their business connections which were halted as a result of COVID-19.

They also complained of the unfavourable business environment in the state before the assumption into office of Governor Adeleke. They think that the Government of Ademola Adeleke is open to investors and eager to turn the fortune of Osun State around.

“I must confess, the present government in Osun State has demonstrated that they welcome investors and are ready to protect their investments in the state,” said Yahaya.

He also disclosed that the Agritech Nigeria Team is still consulting on the choice of the state to be the host, but presently, the board of Agritech Nigeria has chosen Osun State which, however, is subject to the acceptance by the state government.

He further said the management of Agritech Nigeria will soon send a letter to the state government.

Agritech Nigeria is an international event that attracts foreign businessmen and women, particularly the accredited foreign ambassadors and high commissio

ners to Nigeria who are also going to be leading their business people to the event.

“This is a big event, therefore, the host state’s acceptance to host the event is very important considering the high level of dignitaries that will attend the three-day event starting from 26-28 November 2024,” the Executive Director said.
