Keffi Students Football team with OFAB crested playing kits.

As one of her creative awareness strategy towards getting the youths to understand GM technology, OFAB co-sponsored a football match event for students of Nassarawa State University Keffi.

The half time during the match was an opportunity to interact on what GM technology stands for as well as its potentials for Nigeria.

The winning team was given OFAB crested jerseys and the students were excited about the initiative. They called for more engagements and sought for ways to be part of OFABs advocacy programmes. A musician/rap artist, B.O.C became an OFAB Ambassador at the event and urged other students to promote and sensitize others on biotechnology and the role it plays in promoting food security.
