This, the presidential aspirant said, was to improve the socio-economic lives of Nigerians, particularly residents of Dutse where the date palm is majorly grown.

Amosun added that his planned agricultural revolution for Nigeria would include date palm production to enable date palm growers to learn modern techniques and skills to boost their activities.

“So this is me before you and I’ve been tested and trusted when I was the governor of Ogun state.

“If elected, we will make Jigawa one of the food baskets of Nigeria. We will do this by making sure that we feed Nigerians with quality date palm and provoke its  exportation to West Africa.

“So on the 29 and 30, I need your support Jigawa delegates. I will count on your support and even if you don’t see on those days, remember what we discussed,” Amosun said.

The aspirant also pledged to provide job opportunities to Nigeria’s teeming youths to check the current security challenges bedevilling the country.

He further expressed optimism that Nigeria would be on the path of greatness if the right leaders were elected.

Responding, Gov. Muhammad Badaru described Amosu as wonderful man who greatly transformed Ogun when he was a governor.

NAN reports that date palm is widely grown in Jigawa, while its capital, Dutse, which is known for different species of date palm, has a large population of date palm growers. (
