Ooni of Ife Oba Adeyeye Adewusi has appointed founder of Farm4Me Agriculture Limited, Adama J. Adama as Managing Director of Royal African Farm Limited.
He spoke in Lagos after his new appointment was announced through the office of Ooni of Ife Global Outreach (OIGO).
Adama, who promised to take Royal Farm Limited to greater heights, said: “It is worth stating that for Nigeria to move out of the woods, Agriculture is a critical indice for its economic growth amidst the rising rate of inflation.
“This won’t be possible without institutional support from traditional rulers and this is where I commend Ooni Adeyeye Adewusi of Ife for his recognition of our contribution to help reposition Nigerian economy through Agriculture.
The letter of appointment signed by Chief Executive Officer of OIGO, Dr. Ayobami O. Oyedare, extended Ooni’s gratitude to Adama for his noble patriotic acts and consistent positive attributes that are notably inspiring and constructively pushing the narratives of excellence that are embedded in Africa’s young populations.
It described Adama as “one of the worthy sons of Oduduwa in whom our Father, Kabiyesi, Ooni Adimula Ife is well pleased and delighted.”
The letter said youthful Adama was nominated for the prestigious appointment after following his giant strides in the agriculture sector with his tractor rental company, Farm4Me.
While congratulating Adama for the appointment, the Ooni assured him of his unalloyed commitment and unwavering support through the Global Outreach (OIGO).
Adama, a serial entrepreneur and CEO of Farm4Me, ViableX and Ceepass, bagged the Royal African Young Leadership Award on Saturday, May 29, 2021.
The award was organised by the Ooni of Ife’s Royal African Young Leadership Forum (RAYLF), a youth development and capacity initiative.
