The Operation Help Your Neighbour(OHYN) project of Good Circle International Organisation(GCIO), a charity based organisation says its Charity Day and Agric Forum will hold in Asaba on Dec. 6.
A statement by Ogechukwu Okeke, GCIO’s Assistant Director, Media and Communications on Tuesday in Abuja, said that the forum would be held at the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) house, Asaba.
Okeke said that Gov. Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State would be the Special Guest of Honour.
The director said that Mr Fred Amata, actor and a movie producer, as well as the current President of Directors Guild of Nigeria would make a special presentation.
“Operation Help Your Neigbour project is a scheme designed by GCIO to combat unemployment, poverty and crime as well as support the under privilege in Nigeria since 2016.
“The forum will, apart from celebrating the virtues of charity and encouraging farming business among youths and workers, offer participants and the general public the opportunity to participate in the GCIO cooperative agricultural project for the 2018 farming season.
“The pilot scheme of the agriculture project that commenced six months ago has yielded maize harvest while the cassava harvest is around the corner,’’ Okeke said.
Okeke quoted the National Coordinator of the OHYN project, Mr Esanerovo Agbodo, as saying that the general public should take advantage of the project and join efforts with GCIO in the next planting season.
She said that Agbodo thanked the Delta State University and the Federal Government through Benin-Owena River Basin Development Authority for providing land for the farming project.
“The next stage of the project will accept partnership from other state governments and land owners across Nigeria to accommodate the growing interest in the farming project, the statement quoted Agbodo as saying.
