A member of the House of Representatives member representing Bali/Gassol federal constituency of Taraba State, Alhaji Garba Chede made the call in Abuja.
Chede noted that genuine diversification of the country’s economy from crude oil to agriculture needed commitment of enough resources to the agricultural sector.
He insisted that for the youth to be attracted to agriculture, government should not relent in its strategy to mechanize the sector.
The lawmaker noted that reliance on crude implement for subsistence agriculture is no longer fashionable.
He said, “It’s not that the youths are running after politicians. I know that by the time this government puts in more resources to agriculture, it would attract them.”
On the current economic hardship, he said the present administration is embarking on strategies to ensure the wellbeing of every Nigerian.
He appealed for patience to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Chede also called on Nigerians to be law abiding in the interest of peace and good neighbourliness for the progress and development of the country.
