…To dole-out loans to 1million Nigerians

By Ezra Ukanwa, Abuja.

AS part of efforts to drive agricultural development in Nigeria, a group, Faith and Good Works of Destiny, FAGWOD, on Wednesday, sought partnership with the Federal Government, FG, to train about ten million Nigerians on food production.

The group said the move has become imperative following the spate of poverty and economic decline in recent times in Nigeria.

The Chief Executive Officer, FAGWOD, Bishop Eberechris Edmund Agakaizu, said this during a press conference, themed: “Nigeria of our vision”, in Abuja.

Bemoaning the current state of the nation’s economy, he said that the current administration has failed in the administration of its constitutional duties which has jeopardized the country’s chances to measure-up with other countries around the world.

He disclosed that the group now enjoys support from the Bank of Agriculture to give loans to about one million Nigeria, all in a bid to curb poverty and drive agricultural development.

He said, however, that the FAGWOD association would not relent in ensuring the needed growth in the economic sectors, agricultural sector, entertainment and political sector

He said: “The Bank of Agriculture is ready to release loans to not less than one million people in Nigeria through FAWON Farmers Association so that we can go into food productions and make sure that Satan does not have his way and that is the reason why we are asking the federal government of Nigeria to come closer to us and find out what we are prepared to do more.

“As I said, we are not a lazy Group. We are ready to engage over 10 million Nigerians into food production. We are prepared to do that which will please God only; we are prepared to be instrumental in stopping what Satan has programmed even against this nation.”

On his part, the national director, FAGWOD, Chief Editor Aito, said a political arm of the association, tagged: “FAGWOD vision bearers”, is poised to ensure that Nigeria achieves her better days.

He, therefore, called on the Nigerian youths to take the 2023 political activities seriously, stating that it would greatly determine a lot in the nation’s destiny.

“If they do not participate in the 2023 general elections, they will not achieve the results that we all desire. So our focus is to make sure we pull out Nigerians”, he said.

Similarly, the national chairman, FAGWOD Vision bearer, Chief elder Mohammed Suleiman, advised Nigerians to: “not to sell their conscience. They should be conscious of their conscience in deciding who is going to rule them come 2023.

“It is not going to be business as usual, where people will come and buy their vote. Let the youths be focused and be determined. Let them be willing to be part of the positive change of this nation.”
