Nigeria is in a hurry to see projects take off in the agricultural sector to enhance food security and create jobs for teeming unemployed youths.

President Muhammadu Buhari disclosed this Thursday at State House, Abuja, while receiving Ambassador Nasser Bourita, a Special Envoy of King Mohammed VI of Morocco.

“For us in Nigeria, it is like starting all over again. There was a time we had so much money and took things for granted. But with the fall in the international price of oil, we are now readjusting,” the President said.

The President welcomed the plan by Morocco to establish a fertilizer plant in Nigeria, which would not only serve the country, but the entire West African sub-region.

The envoy, who is also Minister Delegate for Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, said his country had developed strategy to deal with religious extremism, and had largely been successful in fighting terrorism.
