Obasanjo Spotted Harvesting Some Food Crops On His Farm (Photos)

A few pictures of the former president of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, were trending on social media. He was spotted harvesting some food crops on his farm.

These are not just ordinary photos, but ones with a lot of messages embedded into them. As fondly called, Chief Obj is a public figure that will never go hungry, but not withstanding his social status, he’s highly committed to farming.

 

 

It’s a known fact that farming is gradually turning into old fashion, especially among our youths. Many young people can’t confidently say they’re farmers. Farming is a very lucrative profession that has a lot of potential. We have different sectors in farming, ranging from fish farming, crop farming, animal rearing, and others.

Below are three reasons Nigerians should return back to farming.

1. Employment opportunities for youths: Commercial farming creates a lot of employment opportunities for youths to get employed. A big commercial farm can employ more than 1,000 youths in different sectors.

2. Boost the Economy of a Nation: Agriculture can contribute massively to boasting a nation’s economy. A nation like Nigeria can’t solely depend on crude oil alone to generate money.

3. Minimize Poverty: Venturing into farming will not only create employment opportunities but can also aid in minimizing poverty among the masses. Farmers will be able to produce their own foods, sell some of their products to acquire other items they need.

There are lot of reasons we shouldn’t overlook agriculture in today’s world.
