President Muhammadu Buhari has disclosed that the agriculture policy of his administration is paying off.
The President who said this while receiving Hailemariam Dessalegn, former prime minister of Ethiopia on Friday July 2, disclosed that they fell back to agriculture because crude oil is no longer sustainable.
Buhari also said Nigerians now eat what they produce because his administration also stopped the importation of many food products.
“We needed to go back to the land, as petroleum could no longer sustain the country, particularly with fluctuating prices.
“Today, we eat what we grow, and we have stopped importation of many food products. There’s no foreign exchange to even waste again.
“Agriculture has also helped us to generate employment.
We have embraced technology, and some people are even leaving the offices to go back to the land. And they are not regretting it. That is the feedback we get.”
