The youths unemployment in Nigeria and other African countries shows that the government cannot solely carry the responsibility of job creation. Every year thousands of youths graduate across tertiary institutions in the country with no assurance of job offer, except for graduates who fall under 30 years of age, they are mobilised for the compulsory national service for a period of one year. Aside this scheme established by the government, no other scheme seem to be viable to employ graduates of such magnitude. Having known this fact, aside the various government social investment scheme like the N-Power, FADAMA Graduate Unemployed and Women Support (GUYS) project implemented under the FADAMA III Additional Financing (AF) supported bzly world bank and federal ministry of agriculture and rural development to empower graduates with grant for agricultural practice and various State governments youths empowerment scheme, there are limited industries compared to the youths population which make unemployment rate on the rise among youths in Nigeria.
With agriculture, food will be readily available on the table while selling agricultural produce and products along the value chain. Harnessing the potential in agriculture will make youths financially independent which reduce social vices that may arise from joblessness.
