|Sen. Bukola Saraki|
Serving senator of the Federal Republic and former governor of Kwara State, Sen. Bukola Saraki has expressed resolve to introduce a revolving loan scheme for Kwara youths, reports DailyTrust.
Sen. Saraki said that the loan for youths in the state is to enable them embark on agriculture.
NaijaAgroNet learnt that the former Governor said that taking up agriculture production as a way of guaranteeing food security in the state and country at large, would assist in eradication of unemployment among the youths.
“If all the youths coming out of Nigerian institutions of higher learning are properly incorporated into agricultural production within a short period of time, the country will stop importing certain items and in turn start exporting,” he said.
He also said, there is need for proper implementation of agriculture as it has more capacity to increase the nation’s Gross Domestic Products (GDP) than oil and other mineral resources.Admin/LS
