The National Directorate of Employment (NDE) in partnership with the Society of Youths in Agriculture (SYA) is set to reawaken youths' interest and agriculture and allied business.
NDE Director General, Malam Abubakar Mohammed said the directorate is ready to collaborate with SYA through the empowerment of youths by providing skills and tools to start agricultural business.
Commenting on the gesture of the directorate, SYA President, Bakere Oladimeji affirmed that the objective of the society is to pave way for an avenue for change in the social order while contributing significantly towards building the nation.
Oladimeji said there is a serious disconnection between youths in Nigeria and agriculture business.
NaijaAgroNet gathered that NDE DG adopted SYA as a development partner that the two bodies would collaborate in rural and integrated farming.
Malam Mohammed advised members of SYA to boost their advocacy and sensitization, and also partner their immediate communities.
