AN appeal has been made to the federal government for grant or soft loan to local producers of agro processing machines of different types for youths to be taught the trade free.

 The Managing Director, Christal Concept Technical and Agro Allied Ltd, Morgan Nnadi, made the call in an interview with the press in Awka.

  “After graduating from tertiary education, I never taught of going for white collar job but to be a problem solver which necessitated my venturing into this business.

 “I intend helping over 100 youths learn this trade if support would come from government to help us gain grant or loan which banks are not relenting in making the process easy.

 “I have done a lot of job for FADAMA projects but it ends there without any plans to give us succor on how to grow our trade for bumper harvest,” he said.

 Nnadi said that with massive investment on agro producing equipment, Nigeria would feed better.
