Muhammed Maidoki, the chairman of the Association of Date Farming, Processing and Marketing of Nigeria (ADAFPAM) in Sokoto State, who spoke during a three-day national conference of the association in the state, said the target would generate 72,000 direct jobs, support 840,000 indirect jobs and over 150 Billion revenue annually for the state alone.
“Date palm plantations have been neglected for so long, and they have very great potentials of making a country economically viable”
