President Muhammadu Buhari has said he is absolutely aware of the suffering and pains Nigerians go through to feed under his administration.
The President stated this during an interview with Channels TV on Wednesday, January 5.
When asked if he was aware of the numbers of Nigerians who find it difficult to feed under his watch, the president responded
“I’m absolutely aware of it, but like I said, look at the vast population of Nigerians, only 2.5% of the land revenue are being cultivated. We realised this rather too late, but we have to go back to the land (agriculture).”
The president, however, advised Nigerians to leverage the opportunity that agriculture offers in order to find a lasting solution to the current economic quagmire.
Speaking on the security situation in the country, the President charged traditional rulers to play a huge role in bringing peace to communities.
