Cross River, Dantata Group, CBN Partner On Agriculture by NASTYNASOSO: 10:50pm On Nov 18
Cross River State is partnering the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and Dantata group to create 20,000 agro-based jobs for youths, it has been learnt.

Governor Ben Ayade stated this yesterday when officials of Dantata Group and CB visited his office.

He said: “The meeting between CBN, Dantata group and Cross River is to cement a factor and create opportunity first for livestock, cattle and poultry. I have made an offer of job opportunities to 20,000 young people with immediate effect but you are actually going to be your own employer.

“We will provide the money. We have signed an agreement with CBN to provide us money to support 20,000 young farmers.”

The young farmers, Ayade explained, will be deployed in cotton production, livestock, maize and soya beans farming, rice farming, cocoa processing, groundnut cultivation, among others.

The governor added that the state, in partnership with Dantata group, will also set up an abattoir in Obudu cattle ranch to grow cattle, beef production and exportation within the West African sub-region.

According to Ayayde, his administration was taking the lead in agro-industrialisation because ‘this is the only way we can create jobs and reduce youth restiveness, and allow young people to realise their full potential’.

He argued that with massive arable land, it was an anomaly for the country to continue to import food. “The advent of COVID-19 and the EndSARS protests are like a clarion call that time has come for us to end food imports. So I identify fully with President Muhammadu Buhari’s philosophy and policy of ban on imported foods to force us to start creating jobs for young people,” he added.

Leader of the Dantata team Alhaji Tajuddeen Dantata, who is also chairman and CEO of Dantata Food and Allied Product Company Ltd, said his company was delighted to partner with Cross River in agro production.

He maintained that the time has come for Nigeria to take its destiny in its hand in terms of food production. “We have to really work on ourselves because we have to produce what we eat and eat what we produce. We can’t sit and continue to be fed with whatever comes,” he noted.

Brilliant!

A very timely intervention by Alhaji Dantata considering the high food prices in the south.

20,000 jobs for Cross River youths is indeed a welcome development (in addition to more cow meat & other products). The kind of value-creating strategic partnerships we need to continue seeing between the North & the South. Reminds one of Lake Rice of Kebbi/Lagos states.

Arewa amaka!

What a good move but it'd have been better if they partner them to eradicate cultism and archaic traditions cos with the both in excess, they're just beating around the bush and looking at prospectives to syphon more money.

Funny how cbn will only be interested once a northerner is the investor. These southerners don't have sense. Their are people from your region who could champion such investment, these nepotic people are monopilizing refinery in your region and you are still giving them agriculture in your own region., wtf is wrong with South South. Can't they see ebonyi and anambra giving indigenous investors monopoly over agriculture and solid minerals. Mumu southern folks are not even allowed to mine gold in zamfara

Central Bank wants to give Dantata loans in millions of dollars. Then they set the self proclaimed Prof. To give them free land and to set the magas, the people of Calabar.

Then tag it job creation. Well done. Clap for yourselves.

Why can't Ayade set up an agency and channel funds into revitalizing the Obudu cattle ranch and the abattoirs.

Las Las, South South are the magas.
