The Minister of State for Agriculture and Food Security, Senator Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi, has advised Nigerians to go back to the farm since land is God’s natural gift that remains an asset for employment and productive ventures.

He spoke in Abuja at the weekend when members of Project 774 for Tinubu/Shettima in the 2023 general election paid him a courtesy call in his office.

Abdullahi, who was Senate Deputy Chief Whip and Chairman Board of Trustees, Project 774 for Tinubu/Shettima said: “I want all members of this powerful network to take the message home that we just have to go back to the land. That is our God’s given natural asset.

We are preparing very hard to make sure that the right things are done to stimulate agricultural production and increase productivity, because it is one thing to go to farm, it is another thing to be productive. So, we want production and productivity and we are working very hard on this.”

He reiterated that the president understands the problem of the country, saying that it is why his eight-point agenda takes food security as a topmost priority.

According to him, the president’s agenda also touches on economic growth and job creation, for which the agricultural and food security sector plays major roles.

The priorities of the president are very clear and straightforward. We have already started digging down to get down to work. I want to appeal to Nigerians that the duty of providing food is a collective responsibility.

In this administration, the emphasis on food security is a very powerful message. With political will, along with my colleague, Abubakar Kiyari, we will work very hard to ensure we deliver on this mandate. We will continue to engage and guide ourselves. Very soon, we will be unveiling our road map in line with the Renewed Hope agenda,” he added.

Convener of Project 774 for Tinubu/Shettima, Dr. Ahmed Adamu said they were grateful to Tinubu for appointing their leader as minister.”
