Central Bank of Nigeria governor , Mr Godwin Emefiele has explained how President Muhammadu Buhari’s promise to provide 360,000 jobs for youths nationwide, will be actualised.
Emefiele unfolded at a stakeholders’ meeting the operational framework for the Accelerated Agricultural Development Scheme (AADS), under which the jobs will be created.

Emefiele said through the scheme, a minimum of 10,000 youths in each state, willing to engage in sustainable and profitable activities along the agriculture value chain, would be employed and trained.
“I believe we are on the verge of something very significant with the AADS.
“ This scheme has been designed to create an ecosystem with the active participation of the public sector, state governments and the private sector,’’ he said.
Emefiele said the objectives of AADS included the creation of economy of scale of farming on contiguous land.
“It will also assist farmers in embracing modern farming practices, such as use of tractors and irrigation schemes.
“It aims to reduce cost of production with availability of high quality inputs at competitive prices and lowering delivery cost of extension services,’’ he explained.
Emefiele said that state governments were expected to provide contiguous arable land, basic infrastructure, more efficient extension services, training and mentoring of the beneficiaries.
“The CBN on its part will provide financing at single digit interest rates. 

“Beneficiaries are not expected to come up with any physical collateral but they must be grouped into formally registered cooperatives and cross-guarantee each other.
“All loan beneficiaries must also have valid Bank Verification Numbers (BVN), which will be registered on the National Collateral Registry and used to track repayments and also blacklist any defaulters.
Emefiele said that with the release of the operational framework for the scheme, engagements with stakeholders would be continuous to ensure that the scheme began during the dry season cultivation of the outgoing year.
Also, the Minister of Agriculture, Chief Audu Ogbeh, said the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development would be providing technical support for the project.
“We will be fully involved in the land clearing aspect of the project. In some places we will also be building dams and lakes to ensure all season farming.
“We will also provide advice because we have a team of experts at the ministry on crops, soil testing and the right kind of fertiliser so that when these young people go into agriculture, they won’t lose money,” he said.
The Governor of Kebbi, Mr Atiku Bagudu, thanked the Federal Government for recognising the significance of agriculture in economic development.
“We could not have recovered from recession as early as we did if not for the intense agricultural intervention initiated by President Muhammadu Buhari,’’ he said.
Bagudu also stressed the need to involve financial institutions, which banking models allowed them to support agriculture, for the programme to succeed.

    Mr Dan have done a great job for me, I have been trying to get a sugar mummy and have been scammed my different so-called agents all they do at forst when i called them is to tell me to send the recharge card to call my woman for me after then they will tell me to send them money and I will keep sending them money more that 5 times even when they asked for more money I keep sending but they will never connect me to a sugar mummy. All they do is take my money and go away I will be calling them but they will never pick up there calls again, and I said I will never call any agent again to hook me up, not knowing there is a real truthful agent Mr Dan who can connect someone to a rich sugar mummy, one faithful afternoon when i returned back from school i had no money on me I thought of browsing online as i was browsing I saw many great testimonies that people was testifying about Mr Dan Dave on how he has been connecting them to rich sugar mummies and daddies in there states. But I did not believe in it that moment I started chatting with one of them privately that was testifying about Mr Dan great work, finally I came to realise that Mr Dan is indeed a genuine sugar mummy agent.. From that very moment I collected Mr Dan's phone number and i called him to hook me up, i told him how I have meant fake agents in the past and how they dope me of my money, he told me he will help me and he told me his terms and conditions just the same way others had been doing to me i was really afraid but I summored up courage to do what Mr Dan has asked me to do by sending him recharge card to call the lady for me, I became more scared thinking that he will not call me back but I keep up my little faith, after 10 minutes I called him back and he gave me the lady's number and also the amount the lady has agreed to be paying me each time we meet. My sugar mummy started my payment with 75k and later increased it to 150k and she has since turned my life around God bless the day i called Mr Dan and God bless you all for reading my true life testimony.
