Fallout Of Covid-19 Will Still Be With Us Till 2021-steve Babaeko by BrandAfriq: 11:35am On Apr 23, 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic might be shaking the world right now but that has still not stopped farmers from seeing how they can feed the nation in the ugly situation even though many are trying to ensure that they keep to tabs with various ways of hygiene so as not to contact the coronavirus.

One of Nigeria’s big name in the advertising world, Steve Babaeko, is not just doing well as a brand mogul but also as a farmer who is ensuring that his farm is one of many that can support the growth of the Nigerian food space through its farms.

Steve was placed on the hot sit by Corporate Farmers International TV, where he gave some insights into his farm and the Nigerian food security at large especially during this pandemic times.

Read excerpts below;

What prompt your decision of investing in the Agricultural Sector in Nigeria?

By 2050 Nigeria based on projections will become the 3rd most populated country in the world behind China and India. Our people need to eat and someone needs to work hard to provide the food. No nation is truly independent until she’s able to feed herself.

Tell Nigerians about your Farm, Babaeko Farms in Kogi State

#Babaekofarms is an initial 50 hectares farm project in Kogi stae, that’s focused primarily on growing and processing of oil palm. Our concept is to overlay tech on best agric practices to further boost productivity. We have @CorpFarmersTV as our technical partner.

What is your opinion about Nigeria Food Security System?

The Government is just beginning to move the needle but there’s a lot more to be done. There’s been interruption of farming activities in the Northeast, farmers/herders clashes in the south hasn’t helped food security either. Time to urgently make up 4 the shortfall is now!

Do you now think the Government is doing enough on Food Security in Nigeria?

The new policies re farming and agric are steps in the right direction + Border closure too. I believe Govt can do a lot more. We need to lower the average age of farmers in Nigeria. Make farming cool so younger people can embrace agric. The youths have novel ideas we can tap.
