  Anambra State Commissioner for Agriculture, Mechanisation, Processing and Export, Nnamd Onukwuba stated this while addressing the beneficiaries in Awka during a one-day free training organised for them.

  According to Onukwuba, the state agricultural sector has been recalibrated with the new value chain to make modern farming not only attractive but also lucrative to unemployed youths, adding that the exercise will be continuous in order to empower more youths across the state.

  The commissioner further explained that the initiative is part of the state government’s measures to boosting agriculture for food security by engaging the youths meaningfully.

  Areas covered under the value chain scheme include apiculture and bee keeping.

  While commending the state government for paying greater attention to youth development, President of Ohaneze Ndigbo in Anambra State, Chief Damian Okeke-Ogene expressed optimism that more youths will be gainfully employed through this initiative.
