The member representing Okene/Ogori-Magongo Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Hon. Yusuf Tijani Damisa, has distributed over 500 bags of fertilizer to 150 youth and women farmers in Kogi State.

Distributing the fertilizer in Okene during the official presentation of the “Report on Action Research into Women and Youth Potentials in Adapting Agricultural Value Chain Approach”, organised by the Agricultural and Rural Management Training Institute (ARMTI), he noted that agriculture is the only veritable tool government at all levels can utilise to completely kick out economic recession.

He said the informal economy and agriculture constitute the most promising sector in job creation, lamenting that young people that are supposed to embrace farming to improve on their standard of living, preferred white-collar jobs in urbanised environment.

“These assumptions about young people in agriculture are damaging,” he said.

Governor Yahaya Bello, who was represented by the Administrator of Okene Local Government, Mallam Abdulrazak Muhammad, urged the people to embrace farming.

He commended the lawmaker for delivering the dividends of democracy to the electorate and urged others to follow suit.
