YALA ACHIEVERS AWARD; Meet Awardee, Akpa Sylvanus Ebinyi


Mr Akpa S. Ebinyi was born in the early 30s to the family of Ebinyi Odey and Otelahu Oko both of Yala Local Government Area of Cross River State.

If he was given a choice, he would have chosen Education, but his dad refused him going to school because he did not want him to be maltreated by the colonial masters.

He then took a bold step into agriculture (farming).

Among agricultural produce he cultivated include yam,cassava and rice.

These produce,he sold to Eastern, Southern and Northern parts of Nigeria.The trailer loads of his produce was so outstanding that his Ibo customers nick-named him (Odike) which means strong man and he is known by that name till date.

Farmers in neighbouring communities went to seek advice from him on his systems of farming such as when to till, mulch, stick and how to apply fertilizers to crops to get bountiful harvest.

Through him many persons who would not have ventured into farming did so.
It was through farming that he trained his children up to tertiary level to extent that one of his a Ph.D holder in Law and Associate Professor.

It is also from farming that he got his means of livelihood and that of his family.

He was able to acquire landed properties from his farming. Notwithstanding the fact that he is now visually impaired, he still farms though not in so much large scale as it was previously.

He hereby urges the new generation to venture into farming in addition to whatever employment they are engaged in.
