The Project Management Consultant for the 60-daily-metric-ton Bayelsa Cassava Processing Factory, Mr Adebowale Ayoade, has said about 1000 ex-agitators and delegates of the Presidential Amnesty Programme will begin training at the facility in the first quarter of 2022.

Ayoade, however said the training was subject to the approval of PAP’s leadership.

He described the facility as the biggest industrial starch plant in Nigeria and the second largest in Sub-Saharan Africa, saying delegates would receive theoretical and practical trainings on cassava cultivation, starch processing and management.

The project manager and the Interim Administrator, PAP, Col. Miland Dixon Dikio (retd), who was represented by his Special Assistant on Projects, Godwin Ekpo, recently inspected the multi-billion-naira factory located at Ebedebiri, Sagabama, Bayelsa State.

Ayoade while speaking to newsmen in Port Harcourt, Rivers State on Monday, explained that after the training, the ex-agitators would become out-growers of cassava stems to feed the factory.

He said the facility would buy all the cassava from the farms to be established by trained delegates, adding that the training would be handled by resource persons certified by the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture.
