During our coordinating meeting on the 4th of July, 2020, our attention was drawn to the concerted efforts of some criminals and unscrupulous elements who are defrauding and extorting members of the general public under the guise of Nigeria Young Farmers Network. These individuals also parade themselves as Buhari Young Farmers Network and have been taking advantage of unsuspecting people.
We have also been informed that these criminals are sharing forms with the heading of NYFN and circulating it around. Some are alleged to have requested for a certain amount of money from people before they are been given the forms.
We want to categorically state and clarify that the Nigeria Young Farmers Network is a non-political, non-governmental organization duly registered with the relevant authorities, with the core objective of accelerating youth development through agriculture.
The membership of the Nigeria Young Farmers Network is currently FREE for everyone and our authentic contact information are as follows:
Website: www.youngfarmer.ng and www.farmyoung.org
Social media Platforms: youngfarmerng
Email: [email protected]
Contact Telephone number: 0704 477 5544 or 0803 4474 677
We have strategic State, Local Government and Ward Coordinators across the 36 States and Federal Capital Territory. Anyone involved or traced to be using NYFN to extort money and defraud innocent people will be brought to book. We have accordingly written to all relevant security agencies to this effect.
For further emphasis, what NYFN does is to connect young people to opportunities in the Agribusiness value chain through integrated partnership with government, private sector and international development organization.
Our current activity for now is reliable data gathering to enable us identify the gaps and challenges to address. Subsequently we will announce through all public channels of our projects and programs.
Thank you for your continued support as we build a socioeconomically vibrant nation driven by the youth.
Director General/National Coordinator
