Unemployed Nigerian graduate starts farming with savings from NYSC allowance

At a time when almost all the youth his age are searching for white-collar jobs or Ponzi schemes to double their money, a young Nigerian man named Gidi Dan Auta has decided to embrace farming.

Knowing the current level of unemployment in Nigeria and wanting to contribute to the country’s food production, Gidi Dan Auta delved into rice farming.

Details on Gidi Dan Auta social media accounts show he is a native of Borno, a state in north-eastern Nigeria. He is a graduate of Bestower International University, one of the leading university in the neighbouring Benin Republic.

Gidi Dan Auta describes himself as an advocate for good governance, an upcoming farmer who is working to help the community and the future generation. He is a fresh graduate who is currently unemployed.


Here are some photos of Gidi Dan Auta in his rice farm:

In a recent post on his social media account, Gidi Dan Auta said his decision to own a farm was driven out of passion, and he also talked about how he started with little funds that were saved from his NYSC allowance.

His advice to others who are willing to try their luck with farming: "Don't wait until you have a lot of money, start with the little capital you have now".
