Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II spoke out at the commissioning of Olam International’s feed mill poultry in Kaduna, but noted that he always gets into trouble any time he speaks in Kaduna State
Sanusi 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.”
Speaking further at the event, Sanusi stated that the agricultural sector is crucial to securing employment for Nigeria’s teeming young population.
“Nigeria has a population of 170million. In the next 20 years, we are going to have 85 million Nigerians within 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.
