Multiplier Effects of IDIPR Projects

The multiplier effects of IDIPR activities in Ijebuland have been considerable.  The programmes have helped to ginger economic activities in the city and its environs because welders, bricklayers, feed millers, food sellers, spare parts dealers, artisans, tradesmen, tailors, photographers, transporters, market women/men and farmers, to mention a few, are directly and indirectly benefiting from the respective projects of the Board.
