FG To Fight Northern Insecurity By Employing Youths
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Public Affairs, Dr. Doyin Okupe, said this on Thursday.
"Government is about to restructure and recapitalise the Bank of Agriculture so as to make funds readily and directly available to peasant farmers with minimal bureaucracy and very low interest rate.
It is also estimated that by the end of 2014, no fewer than 14million youths will be off the streets in the north and fully engaged. Government has also supported this drive by the introduction and propagation of the Al Majiri Educational programme", Okupe said.
