Young Nigerians taking the lead in Eco Entrepreneurship

By Obiabin Onukwugha

Young entrepreneurs worldwide have been making a difference in combating climate change. Through modern agricultural technology, these game changers have been contributing to solving global hunger problems.

In Nigeria, these young entrepreneurs take advantage of green technology in their farming ventures.

According to reports, these young Nigerians are succeeding despite seeming challenges.

Reports have it that Bintu Nakudu, managing director of Majestik Farms, powers his business with solar to control greenhouse emissions for the safety of the birds and animals on the farm.

As part of that measure, all bi-products in the farm are recycled and used as manures for the crop part of the farm.

It was learnt that the Majestik farms boast an output of 1,000 crates of eggs per day and over 280 bags of locally produced chicken and fish feed daily.

By so doing, this young entrepreneur contributes to Nigeria’s food ecosystem. It also has a capacity of 30,000 hectares of land for cat and tilapia fish farming.

Nakudu says she aims to create sustainability and innovation and empower young women, aside from agricultural ventures.

Samson Ogbole is another young Nigerian eco-entrepreneur making a difference through clean and green technology.

Ogbole is the team lead of Eupepia Place Limited, a farm in Ogun State that specialises in vegetables.

Sitting on a 300-acre farmland, Eupepia Palace Limited uses technology as an enabler for agriculture.

It grows various vegetables and fruits, including tomatoes and pawpaw, among others. Ogbole uses greenhouse technology and alternatives to loamy soil.

Ogbole grows different species of hybrid soilless crops with coconut shafts, water and air. Reports have it that he has also trained over 1000 students on farming and farm management.
