Buhari bemoans insufficient agricultural land utilization.


President Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) voiced regret on Tuesday over the country’s limited amount of arable land being farmed, while encouraging more Nigerians to take up farming.

The President made the remarks Tuesday at his country residence in Daura, Katsina State, after Eid-el-Kabir prayers.

This was included in a statement signed by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, headlined ‘I Was Surprised to Hear Only 2.5 Percent Of Arable Land In Nigeria Is Being Cultivated, Says President Buhari.’

According to him, the Presidential Economic Advisory Council informed him that just 2.5 percent of the country’s fertile land had been cultivated.

He also recognized that the country’s poor agricultural land utilization is inextricably connected to a wave of instability in different regions.

As a result, he ordered security firms to collaborate more with communities to create a more hospitable atmosphere for farmers. He directed security services to be more tenacious in preserving the country’s peace and to foster a more amicable connection with communities in order to gather information.

Buhari observed that the security situation in the North East and South-South has improved significantly, and measures are on to guarantee the same in the North Central and North West.

He promised Nigerians that further efforts would be made to apprehend those who have been disrupting the nation’s and citizens’ tranquility.

Additionally, at the prayer field, the Emir of Daura, Faruk Faruk, urged people to increase their support for the President in order for him to carry out his goal of enhancing security and strengthening the economy.

“Since the President took office, the nation has witnessed some good improvements.

“May God continue to bless the President with good health and the bravery necessary to lead the nation to peace. God would not allow Nigeria to suffer humiliation,” he said.
