Nigerians to Embrace Farming…
The Federal Government has called on all Nigerians to embrace farming, emphasizing the vast amount of uncultivated land available for agricultural production.
Abundant Arable Land
With approximately 50 million hectares of uncultivated arable land, Nigeria holds immense potential for agricultural expansion. The government encourages Nigerians to utilize this land to enhance food security and economic prosperity.
Cultivating a Culture of Farming
The government urges Nigerians to adopt a culture of farming, regardless of their primary occupation. Every available patch of land can be transformed into a productive agricultural space, contributing to the nation’s food security goals.
Food Security: A Cornerstone of Tinubu’s Agenda
The Minister of State for Agriculture and Food Security, Senator Aliyu Sabi, emphasized that food security is a cornerstone of President Bola Tinubu’s eight-point agenda. He highlighted the multifaceted benefits of food security, including poverty reduction, crime deterrence, and economic growth.
Combating Corruption Through Food Security
Sabi explained that food security can effectively combat corruption, as individuals often resort to corrupt practices out of desperation due to poverty and hunger. By addressing food security concerns, the government can reduce the likelihood of corruption and promote a more ethical society.
Call to Action: Cultivate a Farming Mindset
The government’s call to action underscores the importance of embracing farming as a collective endeavor. By harnessing Nigeria’s abundant agricultural resources, the nation can achieve food security, economic growth, and a more prosperous future for all.
