Vice President Yemi Osinbajo says that the greatest value for jobs and improved productivity lies in the agro-allied value chain.
Osinbajo made the assertion while declaring open the 2019 Annual National Management Conference of the Nigerian Institute of Management on Monday in Abuja.
The theme of the conference is, “Managing the Challenges of Democracy.’’
He said that the central question especially in the public sector was not the lack of talent or well researched policies but the weakness in implementation.
The vice president said that the implementation of policies and programmes to address the challenges of poverty and wealth creation, jobs for millions of young people required collective thinking and action.
According to him the Federal Government
has created appreciable value in agriculture, with the Anchor Borrower
programme by adding new jobs and acreage in paddy rice, sorghum, millet,
cassava and yams.
