Oil price: AFAN advises FG to give priority to agriculture for more revenues

GOMBE – The All Farmers Association of Nigeria (AFAN), Gombe State, has called on the Federal Government to give more priority t agriculture, to reduce over dependence on petroleum in its revenue drive.
Alhaji Gambo Sarkin-Noma, Secretary of the association, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Gombe on Friday that this would also assist the government in getting more revenues and employment opportunities in the country.
According to him, if government approaches it in that direction, people will be encouraged to return to farm.
He said that a lot of people had the interest and they needed to be encouraged.
He said that God had blessed agricultural activities but people and government had neglected them.
According to him, if government invests in the sector by proving farmers with all the farming inputs and soft loan it would promote economic crops that will be exported to other countries.
He said going by the history of the country, groundnut was the major source of revenues that lead to the success of petroleum products in the country.
Sarkin-Noma said that emphasis on agriculture would also help to boost the economy and address the country’ challenges.
He said that depending on oil would not help the country in the future, as it had started affecting the economy. (NAN)
