Marketing Boards Is The New Nnpc by Lighthouseman: 9:38pm On Jan 17, 2016
With the rude shock staring Nigeria on the face in the glut in the oil market and the crash in the price of crude, it's time the government establishes MARKETING BOARDS either in a state basis.
With the cost of producing Nigeria crude put at $30 pb and crude selling for less than that and could hit the $20 mark if mother less with it budget benchmark currently at 38$ which means we are running at a deficit long before we started implementation means that the government needs to focus on agricultural to first of all guarantee national security because folks will hit the streets when the pay for a loaf of bread hits 500 and may not be available. At that point, even the minister of interior won't be safe with all the security.
I advocate that we are able to fees ourselves in areas we comparative advantage than rushing to export while we starved.
The land use act will have to be amended because agricultural lands are shrinking due to urbanization and land speculators.
Real farmers should be subsidized not St the point if production but after hast with a price guarantee scheme. This will curb corruption instead of the pre production subsidy of giving fertilized to farmers before of which most get diverted.
Farmers henceforth would only get subsidy if the source their seeds from reputable seed companies or Agric development boards in their area.

Besides the aforementioned, whatever Buhari does with forex restriction et AL is just a play in the park without educating the people on what the country finds itself.
