Youth agricultural entrepreneurship as a vehicle for employment creation in Nigeria: A capability approach
MetadataShow full item record
Nigeria is indisputably blessed with both human and material resources. With 74 million hectares of arable land, the country has enormous potential to meet its rising food demand while tackling the challenge of youth unemployment. However, harnessing these opportunities will require the active engagement of the youth in agriculture. Through innovation and entrepreneurship, young people are better positioned to transform the sector for greater productivity and growth. It is therefore not surprising that agriculture is considered one of the most strategic sectors to be exploited in creating employment for young Nigerians. This study is an original research work which explored youth agricultural entrepreneurship as a vehicle for employment creation in Nigeria.
