Globally, given the spate of wars between nations, climate change, and terrorism, hunger has begun to rise in recent years; returning to levels it used to be from some decades ago. Food security has now become an issue of global concern. The economy of Nigeria is not exempt from the fangs of hunger, even though we are in the savannah where the greens thrive most. Notwithstanding the several previous attempts made at various heights of governance both in the states and at the federal level, the poise now is to look for immediate solutions that could naturally reverse the trend. The case in Nigeria is seen to be more cumbersome in that the youths keep migrating to the cities in search of almost non-existing white-collar jobs; despite the fact that government keeps motivating these young people. Some of these young people even travel abroad in search of better offers that developed countries could offer them; completely distancing themselves from local production of local production of edibles. This study set to investigate the factors that could motivate them into agriculture, in a swift bid to increase the production of food crops. Frequency tables, percentage counts, and logit regression at 95% level of significance were used in the analysis of the data. According to the generated results, youth involvement in agriculture is over 90%. Age, marital status, and level of education all play some role in who participated. Logit regression shows that publicity of government pro-youth agro-allied programmes and the availability of fertile land would most likely influence youths’ involvement in agriculture.
