President Muhammadu Buhari said Nigeria would have been in trouble by now if his administration had not decided to go back to agriculture.

Speaking at a virtual meeting with members of the Presidential Economic Advisory Council (PEAC) at the State House, in Abuja on Tuesday, President Buhari stressed the position of agriculture in the government’s scheme to reduce joblessness and poverty.

“For us to bounce back to productivity, especially in agriculture, the unemployed with many of them uneducated had to be persuaded to go into agriculture,” Buhari said.

‘‘If we hadn’t gone back to the lands we would have been in trouble by now. That is why we virtually stopped the importation of food thereby saving jobs and foreign exchange

“COVID has reduced us to the same level as developed countries.

‘‘We are lucky we went back to the land. We eat what we produce. We are doing our best to secure the country and provide infrastructure for investment to be viable in the country,” he said.

  4. The problem we are having with those in power is that they do not buy things outside because if they do, they will know that Nigeria is in mess with what it’s on ground now. So, partially are you telling us that we would have been buying rice at price of#50k or what, when are buying at the rate of #28k. In the agricultural aspect I don’t think you are working even not only agriculture but all aspects.

  5. I think those that are informing the about the present situations in are feeding him with different lies, for him to be saying this something is wrong somewhere. We need a president that will be up and doing in every aspects of everything in Nigeria. The president is just sitting down and telling us what it’s not suppose to be so, those in power should feeding the president with reality not lies.

  6. Which trouble is Mr President talking about. Is there any other form of trouble that will supersede the ones we are in now
