According to Buhari, Nigerians with farmlands should go back to cultivate their lands, adding that mechanized farmers should establish more of the agro-allied industries, using farm products as their raw materials to boost employment opportunities in the country.

“In food production, Nigeria, we can feed ourselves and even export. This is why we are seriously turning to agriculture; that is why I’m asking you, for our own survival as a nation state, keep on telling our people that whoever has a piece of land, please let him cultivate it even if he is going to cultivate what he will eat and feed his family.

“This is very, very serious representation I brought to you to please make sure that you mobilize your people to go back to farm to achieve self-sufficiency in food production,’’ he said.
