Oyetola Urges Youth To Embrace Agriculture by ahmedkoded95(m): 1:32am On Aug 20
Gboyega Oyetola, governor of Osun state, has called on youth across the country to engage in agricultural activities rather than investing their time in cyber-crime.

The governor said this during a facility tour of Bob Jones Farm Limited at Obadimu community, Orolu local government area of the state, on Monday.

He said his administration is committed to revamping the agricultural sector in the state through private partnership.

Oyetola said the sector “remains the sustainable means of advancing the nation’s economy.”

“Agriculture is essential and it pays. This is the way to go if we are serious and genuine in the quest to stimulate our economy,” he said.

“Agriculture is a lucrative business, unlike before, when subsistence farming was the order of the day. Now, agriculture had gone beyond that, as mechanised and digital farming have become the order of the day.

“As a government, we have been working assiduously to breathe a new life into agriculture sector, and make it the most vibrant and profitable means of stimulating and advancing the economy of the state. Our government is open to private sector, individuals and corporate organisations who share the same ideologies with us to reposition the sector for the good of all.

“We are bringing in a revitalisation template that will help to support the needs of our farmers, and as well attract the young ones into farming. The present economic realities have called for the need for everyone to develop interest in agriculture, as the sector remains the sustainable means of advancing the nation’s economy.

“So, I urge our youths to show interest in agriculture and shun illegal means of getting rich. There is no gain in cyber-crime, there is no future in illegitimate means of survival, youths must desist from these acts, and embrace agriculture for survival.

“Agriculture is lucrative, productive and profitable if we all decide to invest in it. Let’s go back to the farm to make our state to be sufficient in food productions and as well have much to export,” he said.

In his remark, Bisi Adegoke, the owner of the farm, said his decision to invest in the agriculture is aimed at empowering the people, particularly the young ones.

Sure we are here; we believe in Agriculture
But what is your Government doing to make sure you help us with soft Loan that will make life easier for farmers

Also the Government have to provide good accessible roads

New technology should also be deployed to make sure things work out fine

Provide cattle ranches for Fulani people

Finally find lasting solutions to Farmers/ Herdsmen

God bless 3rdavenue Farms, God bless Amo Farms , God bless Thrive Agric, God bless Osun State , God bless federal republic of Nigeria


Thanks sir

This people think 21st century agriculture is cutlass and hoe, go to other countries and see how farmers are treated, the agriculture industry should be subsidized, govt have plenty land but they'll rather let kidnappers turn it into their den

No irrigation
Silos are not functioning
No incentives for the farmers
Not even a single market for agricultural products
No good road to transport agricultural products

And you want us to go back to our farms

What we lack is human resources, look at India, no major natural resources but we can't match them because they have plenty human resources

Check most tech companies in America, most are headed by Indians

If Nigeria is really serious about eradicating fraud by the youth, declare state of emergency and give the boys amnesty, someone that's able to collect 10k from someone online with just a phone can do better if this energy is channeled into software development

Check out play stores, Indians developed most app, their Government has various incentives in place for their youth

Russians, chineese, American, Indian, even North Korea sponsored their youth to access infos from other countries, breaking their firewall but in my country, they want a youth that has tasted life to go back to the farms

This is 21st century, govt should stop telling us to go back into farms, everything is online now, frauds is imminent, various anti fraud policies should be in place and who will do this?

Def not a farmer

Re: Oyetola Urges Youth To Embrace Agriculture by stano2(m): 6:45am On Aug 20
Just mouth action.
Join agriculture Join Agriculture
Still farmers are not secured
They receive no support from your government.
Fulani herdsmen will attack their crops and butcher the farmers, highest the governor will do is to show himself and shed crocodile tears and then ask his people to pray.

Give us land and we will farm.

Land is expensive for the youths to acquire.

Provide tractors for hire at good prices.

Stop importation of palm oil!

They speak as though the funds needed to do so are available to the youth. Funding is the major problem. It is the well to do politicians and already established business men that can invest in Agriculture for now, not the broke youth.

The problem we have in agriculture wasn't addressed. Wic are storage facilities, market for your products. We are producing more than enough but we lack storage facilities.
