We Have Created Over 13million Jobs for Nigerians in the Agric Sector — President Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari says Nigeria’s agricultural revolution has created more than 13 million direct and indirect jobs in the past seven and a half years.

The President disclosed this on Friday, December 16, in Washington D.C, USA.

“This same scheme has financed the establishment and operations of our 50 integrated rice mills.

It has also financed over 4.5 million smallholder farmers, ensured the cultivation of almost 6 million hectares of farmland and almost 700 large-scale agricultural projects have been funded.

This Agricultural revolution has led to the creation of over 13m direct and indirect jobs.

The non-oil sector remains the future of our economy.

You will agree with me that the Russia-Ukraine war has compelled many economies to carry out reforms and re-adjust policies to cope with the challenges posed by the conflict,” he said.
