Dr. Akinwumi Adesina receiving the award

“I am proud as the Governor of Iowa State to proclaim Dr. Akinwumi Adesina as the 2017 World Food Prize Laureate.”

With these words, the Governor of the State of Iowa, Kim Reynolds, officially named President of the African Development Bank (AfDB) (, Akinwumi Adesina, as the 2017 World Food Prize Laureate, on behalf of the World Food Prize Foundation, setting off an atmosphere of festive celebration at the Iowa State Capitol Building in Des Moines.

Accompanied by Olusegun Obasanjo, former President of Nigeria, and John Mahama, former President of Ghana, Adesina took elegant steps to the podium to receive the award – the world’s highest recognition for food and agriculture, with his wife Grace and his two children, Rotimi and Segun, and a large and distinguished crowd cheering him on. Representatives of the Nigerian Government, Purdue University, his alma mater, friends, associates and Bank staff were among the well-wishers who came in out in large numbers to celebrate the African agriculture icon, known as “Africa’s Norman Borlaug (”

In line with his avowed commitment to a new deal for youth empowerment, Adesina pledged devote the US $250,000 prize money to a fund in support of young African farmers and agriculture entrepreneurs, or “agripreneurs.”

“And so, even though I don’t have the cash in my hand, I hereby commit my $250,000 as a cash prize for the World Food Prize award to set up a fund fully dedicated to providing financing for the youth of Africa in agriculture to feed Africa,” Adesina said.

“We will arise and feed Africa. The day is coming very soon when all its children will be well-fed, when millions of small-holder farmers will be able to send their kids to school,” Adesina said.
“Then you will hear a new song across Africa: ‘Thank God our lives are better at last.’”
The President of the World Food Prize Foundation, Ambassador Kenneth Quinn, paid tribute to Adesina, “whose breakthrough achievements have impacted millions of farmers and those living in rural poverty in Nigeria and throughout Africa, and whose leadership holds great promise for uplifting millions and millions more across that continent.”

In a speech at the colourful ceremony, the Vice-President of the United States of America, Michael Pence, commended the Laureate in a speech read on his behalf by Mark Green, Administrator of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

“As our global food system is stretched, and the need to feed more people grows, agricultural transformation will require persistence from leaders like you in driving change and capitalizing on public- and private-sector expertise,” Pence said.

The Vice-President described Adesina’s devotion to the cause of fighting global hunger as admirable, and deeply needed, and on behalf of President Donald Trump, extended heartfelt congratulations.
“The United States is and remains committed to food security, and we will continue to work with leaders like you to find innovative ways to end global hunger,” he said.

The Purdue University Glee Club and multiple award-winning all-female Nigerian signing group Adunni and Nefertiti set the mood of the evening with musical performances, followed by the star act: Omawumi, a popular Nigerian vocalist, who had flown in from Lagos for the occasion. The infectious rhythms of Adunni and Nefertiti and popular songs of Omawumi soon moved Adesina and his wife to get up on the dance floor, where they were joined by Obasanjo.

The evening was capped by an elegant award ceremony dinner in the Capitol Rotunda.

Top SEO Mistakes You are Making and How to Correct Them

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is critical to a website's success and by extension an organization's profitability. Hence, most businesses or individuals online have some form of SEO strategy to bring relevant traffic to their website. However, there are a few mistakes that could be hampering your efforts.

Here are 10 of them:  

1. Not Creating Engaging Content

You are writing for an audience and if they do not find it useful or interesting, there is a high probability search engines too will rank it lower. An additional benefit of creating engaging content is that it gets shared on social media thereby extending your reach and increasing your traffic further.

 2. Uninteresting Headlines

If engaging content is the key to traffic, then having an engaging headline is the secret to having your engaging content discovered. Try to hook your audience with something important that will make them feel they must click on the link to read your content. You can also use this tool from Hubspot.

3. Not Having a Sitemap

Search engines are logical in nature and like orderly sites. One of the best ways to get the best out of your website is to have a sitemap that details where different content can be found, it definitely helps your rankings and you should get someone to do it for you if you lack the required technical skill.

4. Zero (Or Limited) Social Media Presence

Search engines also check which posts are getting traction and generating buzz on social media. Twitter and Google+ are very useful in this regard while platforms like Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, Snapchat, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Reddit and Stumbleupon can get you a lot of direct traffic if you engage with other users effectively.  

5.Not Promoting Your Content Effectively

There is the old saying that 'if you build it, they will come'. This might have been true in the early days of the internet but these days you have to promote your content on social media, to your family and friends,online forums, even on electronic media like TV and radio if you can. Do not hesitate to use any opportunity to promote your content as long as you do not spam or overdo it.

 6. Inconsistent Content Publishing Most bloggers and website owners find it extremely difficult to post quality content every day. However, it is important that you make an effort to update your site consistently be-it weekly, bi-weekly or monthly. I would suggest trying to post weekly or latest bi-weekly, this helps your readers to remain engaged and search engines would also learn to index your new content at the regular interval you have created. Do not abandon your site until it begins to lose followership from people and even search engines.

 7. Ineffective Keyword Research Keywords are pointers to your content as search engines do not use every word in an article for indexing and ranking. Hence, the keywords represent the closest themes of a post. For example this post is about SEO and website traffic. Hence, I should label and tag it as such because they best describe what I am writing about. However, there are times you might want to modify your posts to target less-competitive keywords that can get you the traffic you need. You can use these tools for your keyword research -this is from Google and this is a very popular alternative.

8. Poorly Designed Landing Pages There is this saying that goes thus: 'you do not get a second chance to make a first impression'. This is so true for your website,your landing page has to impress and engage a first-time visitor to want more of your website to the point that they feel they have to take action if you are selling something or read more of your content if it is more of blogging you are doing. Make that first opportunity to impress count!

9. Using Boring and Irrelevant Images

 'A picture speaks more than a thousand words', this saying makes it clear why your posts need to have catchy and relevant images to encourage people to view them especially when you are promoting on social media. Do research and use relevant and catchy images for your posts.

10. Failing to Track and Analyze Results

This is one of the most important things you can do to improve your SEO and increase traffic to your website. You are making efforts I am sure, it is important to know and improve what works for you and drop what doesn't. This is a continuous process and you should do at least on a monthly basis. This will help you improve and increase your gains which should have a great impact on your results over time.
