GOOD NEWS, NIGERIA.......Buhari approves farm estates in 109 senatorial districts


There is a good news every well-meaning Nigerian should commend the government and support its implementation.  It is the recently approved FARM ESTATES IN ALL THE SENATORIAL DISTRICTS OF NIGERIA.

If the project is well implemented, with each district planting their best crops, fruitful and profitable over the years, thousands of rural jobs will be created and with the support of Agric Extension experts, agricultural skills will be boosted in every locality, and the multiplier effect will be phenomenal.

Good and popular project are not new in Nigeria, it is the implementation that will determine it's success.  It might be a National policy, but it should be community owned.

My prayer is that men who love this country that has the appropriate Agricultural skills and expertise should be allowed to implement it.  The Agricultural universities in each locality should provide extension services to the project. 

The story


President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the setting up of integrated farm estates in all senatorial districts across the country

This was disclosed over the weekend by the Executive Secretary of the National Agricultural Land Development Authority, (NALDA), Prince Paul Ikonne, after a meeting with Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

To make the plan successful, Ikonne appealed to the various state governments across the country to subscribe to the project by making arable lands available for the project in their states.

According to the NALDA boss, providing required land is expected to take away youths from the unemployment market and engage them so as to achieve food security in a very short period of time.

He said the Kogi State government has donated 700 hectares of land to NALDA for the integrated land estate while the 100 hectares of land donated by the Ogun State government has already been cleared.

He said that the President was committed to and working towards ensuring that the country achieved food security.

He said that Nigerians would live to remember the foundation President Buhari was laying on achieving food sufficiency.


“What the President is doing, the foundation he’s laying in agriculture, is what Nigerians would live to remember him for. No other government, no other government, I repeat, has done as much as Mr. President has done in agriculture and that is why Nigeria is coming closer to achieving food sufficiency.

“If not for Mr. President’s proactive initiative towards farming, the COVID-19 would have knocked everybody out, having been locked in a room or in a house for one year, nobody went to farm, but because of the proactive initiatives he took before COVID-19 came, there was enough food for Nigerians to eat.

“Going further, we are seeking more land donations so that states, governments and communities should make their lands available. The President has directed that we should put up this integrated farm estates in the remaining 108 senatorial district and NALDA is ready to roll out, and for those states that have made the land available, they can as well testify that no time is being wasted and we have swung into action.

“So, I call on other state governors to key into Mr. President’s desire to make land available for this farm estates to be established, as this will take away youths from unemployment market and engage them and we’ll be able to achieve food security in a very short period of time,” he said.


Finally, my beloved friends, Jesus is coming back very soon, to take believers into a life of peace and joy, without trouble and pains in paradise. If you will receive Him as your Lord and Saviour today, He will give you the power to succeed in life and make heaven at last.

For those who are considering whether to surrendering their heart to Him or not, I plead with them to do so without delay, tomorrow may be too late.
