Politics, only northern states grin

Buhari is up to something soon, he want to empower them thus this cooked story, he want to soil his ground for 2019.

How come is it only the northern states that claimed to be feeding the whole nation.

This people don't know we are wise, we are watching

Its an FAO report so i doubt its false

The North have so little to show for so many years of power, now they are in power again and yet nothing to help their people.

The scientists have been shouting about desertification for decades yet northern leaders knowing agriculture is their mainstay, did nothing while other West African countries took steps to prevent the desert.

Now see the result, they are killing for grazing lands in the mid-belt, trying to take over new lands by conquest which can never work, Norther people need to stop their sheepish attitude so they can benefit from Nigeria.

If there's food crises in these states, other states will definitely die of hunger because more than half of the food eaten in Nigeria are produced in these states. This "FAO" report isn't it o. Kebbi and Benue alone produces more food than the entire south west. Apart from Oyo State, which other state produces sufficient food in the southwest? My state Ondo depends entirely on the north while our able body young men prefers Okada and political thuggery to farming. Apart from Rice, palm oil and garri, every other foodstuff in Ondo State comes from the north. Potato, yam, cowpea, tomato, pepper, okra, beef, onion, groundnut, water melon etc. I discovered recently that our oranges are now produced in Benue State.

I can boldly tell you that this report is completely false.

It's another move by the King of the north to tell FAO to face only the North just like he told the World Bank President.

How long are we going to allow the North to stagnate the rest of us by effectively using the tool of politics?

So in your wisdom, it's only graduates that can do farming?

if they wanted to farm don't you think they would have read Agriculture in school?
