In 2015, as part of the Sustainable Economic Development Strategy, we launched the Agricultural Food and Employment Plan (AFJP) to help mitigate the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. By providing employment for more than 34,000 young graduates, we had the privilege to sign up about 6 million small-holder farmers, says Osinbajo.
We are developing a digital Farming Exchange Program with Nigerian FinTechs, MasterCard, and Alliance Rabobank. This will offer farmers a series of product and services from off-takers to investors. The allocated spending plan for AFJP is $1.5billion.
For the National Livestock Transformation, our main aim is on moving gradually from a slowly mobile system of cattle rearing to a more stationary method of livestock production. This, we hope will suppress resource-based disputes and boost performance.
On the Green Imperative Job, there is a EUR995 million, a 5-year project which is financed by the Export-Import Bank of Brazil and other associates to move farming innovation from Brazilian specialists to Nigeria’s business owners, research study institutes, and companies.
