President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the setting up of integrated farm estates in all the senatorial districts across the country.
Executive Secretary of the National Agricultural Land Development Authority (NALDA), Paul Ikonne, announced this after a meeting with President Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
To make the plan successful, Ikonne urged state governments to make arable lands available for the project.
The NALDA boss said the land provided for the project would enable the youth to leave the unemployment market and help the country to achieve food security within a short time.
He said the Kogi State government had donated 700 hectares of land to agency for the integrated land estate, while the 100 hectares of land donated by the Ogun State government had been cleared.
