GYSAPEO Pushes for Agricultural Investment, Targets 10 Million Youths

Published on

Amid the escalating cost of living and the surge in food prices in Nigeria, the Global Youth Skills Acquisition and Poverty Eradication Organisation (GYSAPEO) has put forth a significant proposition to the Federal Government: intensify investments in the agricultural sector. This recommendation was made by Emmanuel Chuks, the founder and president of GYSAPEO, in Abuja during a courtesy visit from Apostle Emmanuel Iren, the Senior Pastor of Celebration Church International.

Chuks emphasized the critical juncture at which Nigeria finds itself, stating that the current economic challenges necessitate the assembly of economic experts dedicated to formulating viable solutions to rescue the nation from its hardships. He passionately argued that agriculture holds the key to mitigating the rising cost of essential commodities and food, thereby alleviating the economic strain on the populace.

In a bold commitment to national development and youth empowerment, Chuks unveiled GYSAPEO’s ambitious initiative, the Nigeria Prosperity Assured Economic Prosperity Initiative. This groundbreaking project aims to transform the lives of 10 million Nigerian youths, lifting them from poverty to prosperity. The initiative focuses on establishing agricultural cooperatives and supporting micro-farmers, equipping them with the necessary training and resources to thrive in the agricultural sector.

“We train and empower them. We are ready to hit the ground running. I just want Nigerians to be persistent and keep believing in God. Nigeria will get better,” Chuks assured. His words echo a message of hope and resilience, urging Nigerians to remain steadfast in their faith for a brighter future.

The push for increased agricultural investment by GYSAPEO comes at a time when Nigeria faces severe economic challenges, including unprecedented food inflation and a general rise in the cost of living. By advocating for a strategic focus on agriculture, GYSAPEO not only aims to address immediate economic concerns but also to lay a sustainable foundation for the nation’s prosperity. This initiative represents a crucial step towards empowering the youth, ensuring food security, and fostering economic resilience in Nigeria.
