The ambassador disclosed this at the closing ceremony of the capacity building in agricultural education in Nigeria training workshop held at the Agricultural and Rural Management Training Institute (ARMTI) in Ilorin.
Hans-Rudolf stated that Switzerland is ready to assist Nigeria in tackling the problem of insecurity as soon as such a request is made.
The emissary commented on the issue of security in the country adding that he has been making observations in the past 8-months of his stay in the country.
He urged the federal government to brace up to nip the crisis in the bud.
He also said that the Nigerian government has relied on its mineral resources, especially crude oil and advised that the ‘over-reliance’ should cease.
He appealed for a shift to agriculture which he believed would create jobs and reduce poverty in the long run.
