The Federal Government on Sunday said it will be training 500, 000 youths on agriculture and skill acquisition in a bid to provide food security.

The Minister of Labour, Dr Chris Ngige,  this is coming as the campaign for the diversification of the Nigerian economy is getting stronger and as many believe that the nation is presently in a state of economic recession owing to a decline in crude oil exports.

Corroborating this statement, the President, Fisheries Society of Nigeria, Dr Olajide Ayinla, announced that the society is partnering with the government to improve the sector by inserting fishery into the school curriculum to enhance the knowledge among young people and create jobs.

Experts say Nigeria spends about $11 billion on the importation of wheat, rice, sugar and fish alone, based on this, the fishery society is collaborating with the government to encourage more local production. (Channels TV)
