Nigeria: Farming, the Only Exit Route From Economic Recession, Says Emir
The Emir of Keffi in Nasarawa State, Dr Shehu Chindo-Yamusa, says only farming can take Nigerian out of the current economic recession if properly harnessed.
Chindo-Yamusa made the assertion on Sunday when some farmers in his emirate conducted communal labour on his farm located at Saura Area, Keffi . According to him, God has blessed the nation with fertile land that if properly harnessed, can provide abundant food for the country. He said Nigerians should collectively go back to the farm and engage in both rain-fed and dry season farming to boost food production. Chindo-Yamusa particularly urged youth to embrace farming as a means of livelihood, saying such a move was the best approach to eradicating poverty and addressing the problem of unemployment. The emir also advised the Federal Government to initiate policies that would encourage young farmers to embrace modern farming techniques.
