Senate President, Ahmad Lawan has said that the 2021 budget which is being processed by the National Assembly should be mindful of the youth unemployment in the country.

Lawan spoke in Abuja against the backdrop of the recent EndSARS protests in the country, at a public hearing organised by the Senate Committee on Agriculture on 2021 budget defence on Monday.
Recently we had some of our youths protesting some of them very genuinely, they were seeking the attention of leaders and they got the attention of leaders.

He said the nation’s budget especially for 2021 should be mindful of what we do to provide employment opportunities for these youths.

The Senate President also said that with practical and radical approach agriculture sector would change Nigeria’s fortune.

And Agriculture without prejudice to any other sector is enough to turn around the fortune of Nigeria something that the oil has not been able to do.

The Senate President described agriculture sector as the mother of all sectors in the Nigerian economy and urged all stakeholders at all levels of government to accord it more attention.
