Promotion of Agribusiness in Nigeria through Youths’ Employability Skills and Entrepreneurial Training


The objectives are to: determine the efficacy of entrepreneurial training in enhancing youths’ employability skills in rural communities; explore the extent to which entrepreneurial training influences the soft skills of Nigerian youths in promoting economic activities in rural communities and; dissect the influences of entrepreneurial training on the hard skills of Nigerian youths in the quest to promote economic activities in rural areas. A descriptive cross-sectional survey design was employed, multi-stage sampling technique was adopted to sample the rural communities and the respondents, and the sample size is 100. The study reveals that the identified agricultural opportunity during entrepreneurial training pushed youths into agribusiness (71%), resilience strategy for agribusiness is still strange (62%), thinking creatively has become strategy to grow agribusiness (91%) and, inability to get job pushed youth into agribusiness (71%). It therefore recommends that further training is still needed for the survival and resilience of the agribusinesses.
