Npower: Go back to farming- Senate president Ahmed told Nigeria youths

The president of the 9th senate, Ahmed lawan has released a outrageous statement to the Nigerian Youths, in his latest words, the told the youths to go back to farming, our pride is in farming, the nation is not producing much food because our youths are not ready to farm

This statement is coming as a result of low or poor patronage of the agricultural sector of the country, and the high rate of imported food from abroad, which has caused the country billions of dollars

Nigerian youths are not ready to farm; they are only interested in white collar jobs which are not readily available, a sad reality bedeviling the nation. see

Many youths have opposed this statement as “poorly conceive and careless statement” from the number three citizen of the nation. A person who studied medicine for good six to seven years should move to farming or a person who is an educationist, engineering or accounting should also go back to farming, an anonymous youth disclosed

Agriculture should be practiced in a modernize way, government should provide a mechanized system, then can you accused us of not willing to farm, a youth alleged
