During the Commissioning of the Olam International’s Feed Mills and Poultry on Tuesday in Kaduna, the Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II said he gets into trouble whenever he gives a speech in Kaduna State.
He said “It is always a pleasure to associate with the giant stride driven by my friend, the governor of Kaduna state. The problem, of course, is that every time I give a speech in Kaduna, I get myself into trouble.”
During his speech, he emphasized the importance of the agricultural sector in securing employment for young Nigerians. “Nigeria has a population of 170million. In the next 20 years, we are going to have 85 million Nigerians between the ages of 20 and 40. That is more than the population of Germany, the world’s third largest economy.
“The only way we are going to provide for this mass of young men is to invest in Agriculture and industry. So, this is not just about food security, it is about the security of our nation,” he added.
