Food sufficiency: NDE begins training of 100 unemployed youths in Nasarawa
NATIONAL Directorate of Employment (NDE) in Nasarawa has commenced training of 100 unemployed youths in sustainable agricultural development for wealth creation and food sufficiency.
The acting Coordinator of NDE in the state, Mr Rotgak Goden-Go’ar, said this on Monday at an orientation exercise for participants of the 2021 Sustainable Agricultural Development Training Scheme (SADTS), in Lafia.
He said that the programme was organised to sensitise the new trainees on what they were going in for.
The acting coordinator said that the orientation exercise was also an opportunity to inform the participants on the various programmes of NDE to enhance accessibility and self-reliance.
“It is also to educate the participants on the code of conduct, the dos and don’ts while on the training as well as general counseling.
“This scheme was carefully crafted to attract youths into agricultural production, using modern methods.
“It will provide more profitable farm income, promote environmental stewardship and enhance quality of life for families.
“The training is in line with Federal Government’s policy on agriculture for empowerment, wealth creation and food sufficiency,” he said.
Goden-Go’ar stated that a total of 100 participants were engaged for the training, with the first phase scheduled to take two weeks.
“The second phase is practical, which involves establishment and maintenance of two model demonstration farms in livestock and crop production,” he said.
