Food Is Coming: FG To Employ 100,000 Graduates To Farms


Over 100,000 graduates are to be employed by the Federal Government and drafted to farms in all local government councils across the country, as extension workers to help government actualise its food production drive.

Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Chief Audu Ogbe, made this known shortly after he inspected various Value Chain Development Programme, VCDP, Improved Agronimics Practice farms at Sumaka and Taraku in Guma and Gwer Local Government areas of Benue State.
Represented by his Senior Adviser, International Donor Partners, Mr. Auta Appeh, the minister said the initiatives were necessary because government “is doing everything to encourage our youths to take up farming as a business and not as a hobby.”
In his speech, National Programme Coordinator of the International Fund for Agricultural Development, IFAD-VCDP, Dr. Ameh Onoja, said the organisation had constructed roads, cleared farmlands and provided inputs through its matching grants to farmers to galvanise the sector.
Chief Gbor Igyo urged government to urgently provide tractors and farming implements and inputs to farmers if the food sufficiency campaign of the present administration would become a reality.
