Agric Minister urges Nigerians to embrace farming to improve economy

By Matthew Eloyi

The Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Alhaji Mohammad Abubakar has urged Nigerians to venture into agriculture to improve the economy.

Abubakar made the call on Saturday, the second day of his familiarization tour of some Agricultural facilities in Kaduna.

According to him, agriculture is the best business that one can venture into as it never fails because government is always there to intervene with funding coming from within and outside the country.

However, he said the agricultural sector is faced with various challenges of hoarding, hence the need to change the tides.

In his words, “I have seen equipment in the stores that should have been distributed to end users instead of being laid fallow and left to decay.

“We cannot let situations like this continue to happen because we do not want to hurt anybody. These people benefiting from hoarding equipment and agricultural inputs are hurting a lot of farmers and the economy of the country.

“So I am not afraid to do what is right and we will do what is right to change some of the narratives of hoarding agricultural inputs while showing the people that government is doing its best to improve the lives of Nigerians.

“I am undergoing this familiarization tour to ensure that the agric sector performs its best as agriculture is the back bone of any country’s economy so we are going to collaborate with all stakeholders to ensure we get the best.”
