The Heroes of Agriculture
Before the 60th independence celebration of Nigeria, we thought it wise to celebrate heroes both past and present that have contributed meaningfully to Agriculture. Nigeria Agricultural sector has not recognized any of her hero before. Every sector celebrate their achievement and their heroes. But none was found for the supposed eminent sector. Agriculture has contributed meaningfully to lives and the economy in the past, but it is the most relegated today.
The National Flag Colour Not A Mistake
The National flag colour is Green and White, we believe it is not a mistake. The design of the national flag and the colour associated with us depict the fact that Agriculture is our number one source of income as a Nation. But we drifted into oil and other sectors. It is sad that we are yet to appreciate the importance of this sector.
Nigeria has over 37.7 arable lands, which is enough for us as a Nation to become the number one exporter of Agricultural produce to other countries. But the reverse is the case here. We are known as the number 1 importer of Agricultural produce.
Nigeria has the most fertile soil in the world. we have the most conducive weather condition and good seedlings to compliment it. Our soil is so rich that any seed carelessly thrown grows and bear good fruits. That is how blessed we are as a Nation.
