“I now flag off the National Young Farmers’ Scheme. It is my expectation that the Scheme will take in young Nigerians, graduates and non-graduates alike, and be part of this Government’s effort to reduce unemployment and contribute to the regeneration of agriculture and our economy,” the president stated.

Under the National Young Farmers Scheme, National Agricultural Land Development Authority (NALDA) intend to inject 774,000 new farmers into the agricultural sector. They are currently running a pilot programme that involves 100 farmers from each of the 774 LGAs of the country.

This is intended to help improve and create an enabling environment for young farmers and those interested in farming to thrive and also, to ensure food security in Nigeria.
