Oil Revenue No Longer Enough, Nigerians Need To Explore Agriculture – Buhari

Oil Revenue No Longer Enough-OnoBello

President Muhammadu Buhari said that the time has come for Nigerians to do more than pay mere lip service to agriculture, as crude oil and gas exports will no longer be sufficient as the country’s major revenue earner.

President Buhari made the declaration at an audience with Dr. Kanayo Nwanze, the Nigerian born President of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), at the Presidential Villa.

“It’s time to go back to the land. We must face the reality that the petroleum we had depended on for so long will no longer suffice. We campaigned heavily on agriculture, and we are ready to assist as many as want to go into agricultural ventures,” the President said.
