IITA partners with the WJSeries to promote agriculture

IITA and the Winihin Jemide Series are partnering through a Garden Show exhibition on the theme ”Waste to wonderful” in celebration of Nigeria at 100, to promote environmental beautification, healthy living, and agriculture.

The 3-day exhibition which was held at the Oriental   Hotel in Lagos from 30 May to 1 June showcased an overwhelming yet spectacular display of flowers and the benefits that agriculture offers.  The CEO of the WJSeries Mrs Winihin Jemide, speaking at the opening was very delighted and welcomed all to the second edition of the series. She encouraged all to at least plant a tree and join forces to transform wasted areas in Nigeria to green areas.

”Planting is a rare way to share” she said. This year’s exhibitions featured contests in photography, essay writing, and flower displays.  Guests came from all around the world.4
