In a strategic move to combat poverty and boost agricultural development, Hon. Lukmon Atobatele, Deputy Minority Leader of the Ogun State House of Assembly, has launched an ambitious agricultural training and empowerment program for constituents.

Speaking  in Abeokuta during a meticulously organized interview session, Hon. Atobatele emphasized the critical role agriculture plays in alleviating poverty nationwide.
