Niger PAN chair urges youths to embrace poultry farming

Chairman, Poultry Association of Nigeria (PAN), Niger State Chapter, Dr Usman Mohammad-Saba, has urged youths in the country to embrace poultry farming as a way out of biting poverty and unemployment.
Hon. Saba, a former member, of Niger State House of Assembly, told newsmen in Bida on Thursday that there were a lot of opportunities in poultry business that people could exploit.
He said that poultry farming is thriving in Nigeria, just as it is profitable and easy to undertake.


According to the former lawmaker, rather than wait for elusive white collar jobs, the youths can also access various federal government’s intervention funds of the president Buhari’s administration, as well as other agencies when they engage in poultry farming.
Dr Saba, who is also the Kangiwa Nupe, advised youths across Bida Emirate and Niger state to engage in meaningful ventures like poultry farming, to earn a living. 
The chairman, who frowned on the sudden increase of youth restiveness and drug abuse, attributed same to idleness occasioned by unemployment.

He therefore charged every young man and woman to engage in poultry farming with a view to being self-reliant
The chairman lamented that huge funds were lying idle because those who were supposed to access them were ignorant of such opportunities.
He noted,”  if Nigerians embrace poultry farming it would ensure the success of the Buhari government’s agricultural policy.”
Saba stated also that, himself and other Executives of the association will go to all nooks and crannies of the state to sensitise the people on the importance of poultry farming to their well being.
