Samson has served in a number of extension/outreach programs, reaching over 350,000 farmers and rural people in Nigeria. Among these programs are: maize hybrid-seed production in an out-growers scheme; incentivizing climate-smart agriculture adoption; performance evaluation of the FADAMA III project supported by the World Bank; and cotton production program of the National Cotton Association of Nigeria (NACOTAN). His latest endeavors in Nigeria's agricultural and rural development space entail providing digitized extension support to small-holder farmers as well as organizing and conducting trainings on improved production practices for extension agents and farmers, through the Anchor Borrowers' Program (ABP) of the Central Bank of Nigeria's development finance initiative.
