The country wants to diversify from crude oil to other sectors which I think is a brilliant idea, however it seems like we are all concentrating on the same sector, Agriculture. We Nigerians suffer from the band-wagon effect. We’re interested in a certain kind of business just because we know of someone else that excels in the same line of business. Everyone is diversifying into agriculture but is it everyone that has and knows what it takes to farm? No! That’s what Nigerians don’t understand. Just 3 weeks ago the World Bank approved a $200 million credit to support the agricultural sector. Once a typical Nigerian becomes aware of that, he and everyone else jump unto that bandwagon trying to get their share of the money. Yet they have zero knowledge or expertise on what it takes to farm. I have a small garden in my house and I know exactly the level of commitment and resources needed just to get rid of weeds. Not to talk of everything else associated with farming. But to an extent they are not to blame. It’s the effect of living in Lagos or should I say Nigeria. You need more than one source of income to survive in this country. As a result everyone is grabbing unto whatever they can to increase their disposable income.
This is where it all begins! He wears that little body out all day playing on the farm and open spaces but still finds time to get some reading material in. I put him to bed with the lights out and came back to find him like this. Tractors and #dirt is all a child needs! Play sets are fun for a day but the farm life entertains these little ones all day every day. Do you have childhood memories on the farm? Please comment if so. #freepeople#freedom
For the sake of #NationalCowboyDay : "Neither of my parents went to college, but they were both readers. I don’t think a night went by when my mom didn’t read to us kids from the time we were little bitty. She’d bring home books from the library. This was before the age of television and there weren’t a whole lot of other things to do. I still love to read. I usually have about four books on my bedside table going at once. But with farming, you can’t get it out of a book. And you can’t get it off of a movie. You have to be there, you have to feel it. You can always judge by a man’s hands whether he makes his living off the land. There was an old gentleman who worked for me, and he never wore gloves. And when you shook hands with him it was like shaking hands with an old saddle."
