AGRIBUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES SEMINAR 2020
It’s no news that one amongst the foremost unexploited potentials in Sub Sahara Africa is Agriculture. Nigeria, for instance, is endowed with 84 million hectares of arable land (bigger than the landmass of most African countries), 60% (50.4) million of which is currently uncultivated: the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria via the Minister for Information; Lai Muhammad rightly asserted that; “Our soil can grow almost any crop and our vegetation supports animal life as varied as creation can manifest, our rivers and coastlines are rich with fishes and various kind of lives”.
Most people still view agriculture as a dead-end career that entails life-long labour on a farm. However, it doesn’t need to be in this manner. Every day, I get emails and calls from people that are seeking for opportunities in Agriculture and are often discouraged by the long-held myth and belief that being in agriculture is all about having farmland, taking a hoe and cutlass to form yam ridges and permanently get confined within the rural communities. Well, I’m glad to tell you that Agriculture is far bigger, broader, and wider than simply that!
