Afe Babalola: Nigeria Can Overcome Poverty With Agriculture

Afe Babalola, who is a Nigerian Lawyer and founder of Afe Babalola University, has said that it is Agriculture that can help Nigeria overcome poverty, hunger and unemployment. He said, “It is imperative that we revive agriculture to ensure that Nigeria regains its lost glory in that all-import realm and in the overall interest of the people. Any nation that pays little or no attention to agriculture does so as its own peril and risks becoming a beggarly nation.

“I am, therefore, appealing to those in white collar jobs to have gardens at the back of their homes while government should encourage small, medium and large scale farming for different categories of people. As part of its community service, ABUAD and its founder, as stakeholders, in 2014, embarked on this crusade to renew people’s interest in agriculture with the overall aim of reviving it.”
