Founder of Iwuanyanwu Foundation, Chief Engr. Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu has called on governments at all levels in Nigeria and youths to as a matter of necessity re-embark on agriculture in order to ensure food sufficiency and safety, adding that any society that is trailed by hunger is bound to fail.


Chief Iwuanyanwu made the passionate appeal recently when the leadership of Iwuanyanwu Foundation signed a Memorandum of Understanding MoU with the Central Bank of Nigeria CBN under the South East Entrepreneurship Development Centre. Addressing officials of CBN during the signing of the MoU at the Glass House Orji, Chief Iwuanyanwu posited that the foundation was aimed at taking graduates and young school leavers into job creation to confront unemployment with ease, regretting that the system is passing through sad and tragic system where joblessness is the order of the day and it was difficult to explain the immediate cause of the over growing unemployment where God blessed the people with different degrees of natural resources.
The Ikeduru local government of Imo state born political guru maintained that the present system has become so bad and tragic especially where people mainly youths lose their lives in search of jobs or what he called greener pasture in foreign countries and consequently human beings at various stages were auctioned like fowls. He furthered that it is only agriculture that can save Nigerians from such circle of crisis, stressing that what poverty provides is insecurity, hence Nigerian government and leaders at various levels should encourage farming to protect the future of the country and her citizens, maintaining that there is dignity in labour and farming is honourable. The founder of IF pointed out that the nation had before now recorded high intellectual capacity due to the people's involvement in agriculture before the exploration of oil, viewing that the foundation and CBN will provide training opportunities for youths and creates agricultural system that would make food cheap and available to enhance economic diversifications. 
While commending CBN for the partnership and commitment in the growth of Nigerian youths, Iwuanyanwu declared that with the opportunity, there will no need for what he called sudden wealth creation by the oil boom where none proper management has become the problem, hence the oil blessing is tactically becoming a curse due to lack of adequate management. The public partnership will force Nigerians to prove their potentials and redeem the country from distressed economy and change the face of the system from poverty to greatness and learn the skill for domestic development because government alone cannot shoulder the stress. In his contributions, the CBN's Coordinator for the South East Entrepreneurship Center, Dr. Osita Aniemeka commended Chief Iwuanyanwu's vision and noted that the progress of the youths is paramount in every society, adding that the foundation has made history by signing the MoU with CBN. He pointed out that in less than months, the action will be celebrated and many youths recount their gains especially in capacity building.
