Ogbeh gave the appeal in an interview with newsmen at the end of the monthly meeting of Heads of Missions of European Union member countries in Abuja on Tuesday, May 14. The minister, who said that youths’ migration was not sustainable, noted that a joint committee would be set up to advance the programme. 
According to him, rather than youths going out, 'we want them to come back and invest in agriculture'. “We also raised the issue of migration of our youths across to Europe and the fact that it is not sustainable. “It is something that Nigeria will like to see come to an end by creating economic activities here to make sure that young people stay back at home," he said. Going further, he added that: “We are also lucky that Nigerian youths are interested in agriculture, different from youths in other countries. Even those who studied other courses are interested in agriculture. “We did raise the issue of kidnapping of investors here, we do not want any Nigerian or foreigner investing here to be kidnapped and taken away,’’ Ogbeh said.
