The Concerned Youth Empowerment Association of Nigeria (CYEAN) has called on the Federal Government of Nigeria to support youth farmers to help the country achieve self sufficiency in food production.

The National President of the association, Noble Adaelu, made the call in Abuja on Monday  May 29 2017 while speaking on the achievements and challenges of the Federal Government in the past two years.

Adaelu said the youths were yet to receive the needed support from the Federal Government in the areas of subsidised farm input supplies and access to low interest finance.

He lamented that the Federal Government has not involved the youths in agriculture, stating that all the programmes outlined by previous governments for agriculture advancement have not been replicated.

He also faulted the approach to the CBN-BOA ‘Anchor Borrowers Scheme’ in some states, adding that only few portfolio farmers benefitted from it.

The national president, however, appealed to the government to involve genuine farmers in agricultural programmes to encourage them to boost production.

Adaelu, who regretted that cassava production was being neglected in the country, said it could supplement wheat in bread production if adequately tapped.

The Concerned Youth Empowerment Association of Nigeria is a co-operative society that promotes and clamours for the rights of youths to enable them attain agreeable democratic atmosphere.
