Cleric urges Nigerians to embrace farming 

Prophet Isa El-buba, the General Overseer of the Evangelical Bible Outreach Ministry International (EBOMI), has advised Nigerians to embrace farming as an occupation.

El-buba, who is also the Convener of the Initiative for Better and Brighter Nigeria (IBBN), gave the advice in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Jos.

According to him, Nigeria is blessed with arable land and temperate weather capable of growing all types of crops, hence, people should take advantage of that and engage in farming activities.

He explained that such a move would avert the looming food crisis in the nation, as people would produce for both subsistence and commercial purposes.

”Nigerians should embrace farming; agriculture is the way to go and government should not beg us to go into farming.

”No matter how small the piece of land is, cultivate it and since we are blessed with quality soil, you will be amazed what that small piece of land will produce.

”With the current happenings, the days ahead will be rough and so by farming we will be able to avert food scarcity.

”So, whether you are a civil servant or not, young or old, women and girls, let’s return to farming and so we can have avalanche of food to consume and even export to other countries,” he said.

El-buba, however, called on the government and the security agencies to tackle insecurity and ensure the safety of the people while on the farms
