In his welcome address, the chairman of TCL Agro-Allied Co-operative Society, Mr. Basheer Tosin Ashafa, informed the assembly that the co-operative was set up to enable its members realize economic benefits that they could not otherwise achieve alone. “By pooling our financial and material resources, we will be able to develop new market opportunities, expand existing markets and empower agricultural entrepreneurs to improve their position in the marketplace.” 


Speaking further, he said “Of utmost importance to us is the economic empowerment will create for people through our demonstration farm clusters. Our pilot bee-keeping farm is set to commence in Orugbo, Epe. The reality of Nigeria’s dwindling oil-dependent economy necessitates the need for recourse to agriculture and other viable businesses not dependent on the petro-dollar. We have engaged great minds as consultants in the agricultural value chain in order for us to benefit massively as we kick off.”
