Speaker Dogara Calls On Nigerian Youths to Embrace Agriculture

Dogara made the call while launching the distribution of 2,100 bags of fertiliser for Yamaltu-Deba constituents in Lubo, Gombe State, on Saturday.

Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has called on the youths in the country to embrace agriculture as means of livelihood.

Dogara made the call while launching the distribution of 2,100 bags of fertiliser for Yamaltu-Deba constituents in Lubo, Gombe State, on Saturday.

The fertiliser was donated by Abubakar Yunus, who is the member representing Yamaltu-Deba Federal constituency in the National Assembly.

Dogara said the wealthy persons in the society who are constructing mansions should also invest in agriculture so that the common man can have food on his table and also be gainfully employed.

He commended the member for the assistance rendered to his constituents, describing it as timely.

”This is in line with President Muhammadu Buhari’s policy of revamping agriculture.”

”When we see a member doing well, it is our duty to support and promote him.”

Speaking earlier, the donor said that members of his constituency are predominantly farmers, hence the need for the fertiliser assistance.

He said the fertilisers donated were brought to the town in three and the half trailers and each of the trailers contained 600 bags.

Yunus said he also purchased Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) forms for 350 youths, as well as secured job for many.
