Cluelessness...... Money that would have been used to subsidise fertilizer and make it even cheaper & accessable...

You want to tell me most of the farmmers cant afford an android phone? Even if they can't, would buying them one solve the scarcity of fertilizer?

Still copying GEJ's policies left, right and centre? I thought you said he did or started nothing good.
Politics of deceit and not for common good is the cancer killing Nigeria.

Nice only if it is relevant. Why do we like deceiving ourselves in Africa and Nigeria in particular. We know that western world agricultural system has gotten to the level of using smartphone app to monitor their output, but must we copy all what they do. How will this smartphone app going to help a farmer still using cutlass and hoe to farm. I see this as a scheme for a corrupt politician to embezzle some money
