A statement from his media office said; “We are in the business of creating job opportunities and elevation of the poor masses in Nigeria. That is why we are supporting the mission of the transformation agenda of Mr. President in diversifying the economy from oil to non oil. We want our farming to be mechanized.”
Kano State coordinator of NAMCON, Alhaji Abdulhamid Yakubu, said after intensive training, the association would help the beneficiaries to set up their farms.
Women Nurturing Birds for Wealth Empowerment Program is designed to empower women and youths in poultry management and entrepreneurship. 60,000 women and youths are expected to benefit from this project nationwide and the scheme is expected to produce 125 million broiler birds per annum.
Dr. Waziri who has launched the programme in various cities in Nigeria said the Kano initiative would go a long way in making farming attractive and rewarding to young people.
