Other key areas discussed included subsidized training for the professional members of NiFST in the form of vocational skill acquisition to take care of the loopholes created in our higher institution where most graduates are trained theoretically which had set the country backwards in terms of development, both organizations have reached a compromise on developing more entrepreneurs that will take care of employment and boost Nigeria economy through food productions.
