President Muhammadu Buhari has disclosed that the agriculture policy of his administration is beginning to yield positive fruits in the country.
The President who said this while receiving Hailemariam Dessalegn, former Prime Minister of Ethiopia on Friday disclosed that Nigeria fell back to agriculture because crude oil is no longer sustainable.
He further revealed that Nigerians now eat what they produce because his administration also stopped the importation of many food products.
“We needed to go back to farming as petroleum could no longer sustain the country.
“Today, we eat what we produce and we have stopped importation of many food products. There’s no foreign exchange to even waste again.
“Agriculture has also helped us to create employment. We have embraced technology, and some people are even leaving the offices to begin farming and they are not regretting it,” he said.
