People Are Quitting Offices To Work In Agriculture, According To Buhari.
Fabenmedia Nigeria reports that President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that his administration’s agriculture programme is paying dividends.
The President stated this while receiving Hailemariam Dessalegn, Ethiopia’s former prime minister, on Friday, July 2.
Nigerians now eat what they produce, according to Buhari, because his administration has banned the importation of several food items.
“We needed to go back to the land, as petroleum could no longer sustain the country, particularly with fluctuating prices.
“Today, we eat what we grow, and we have stopped importation of many food products. There’s no foreign exchange to even waste again.
“Agriculture has also helped us to generate employment. We have embraced technology, and some people are even leaving the offices to go back to the land. And they are not regretting it. That is the feedback we get.”
