FG Challenged the Youths on Agriculture


The Federal government has challenged Nigerian youths to focus their strength on the growth of agriculture in the country.
Dr. Baraka Sani , Special Adviser on National Schools Agriculture Program (NSAP), gave the advice in Lagos during the presentation of   certificate of appointment to one of the ambassadors of the imitative, Mr.Tony Elumelu, said the government has provided the enabling environment for agriculture in Nigeria to thrive. She said the active   involvement of youths in agriculture would not only make them better persons, create jobs but would also add values to the economy of the country.
She explained that NSAP is aimed at developing youth agriculture enthusiasts in selected secondary schools across Nigeria, from 12 states across the six geo-political zones.
According to her:  ‘’The goal of the NSAP is  to build technical and entrepreneurial skills in students to run agriculture as a business; to leave school with practical skills to create jobs for themselves, and to enable the youth develop a positive attitude towards agriculture.”
Mr. Elumelu, the chairman of Heirs Holdings, commended the administration of President Jonathan for its renewed vigour on agriculture, saying the development is a positive sign to free the nation from economic bondage. He said NSAP initiative is a proactive measure that would meaningfully put the youths into task on how to use agriculture to empower themselves and create wealth for Nigeria.
