The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, on Tuesday met with President Muhammadu Buhari in the presidential villa, Abuja.

“The meeting with the President was about peace and progress of the nation which he stands for and I stand for,” the Ooni said after the meeting. “What is also key is youth empowerment. That is the main purpose of this meeting. There is a lot. I am currently working with the Minister of Agriculture. We have been able to assemble over 200,000 youths within a space of 30 days. It is unbelievable. We are encouraging them to go back to the farm.”

    Kabiyesi, y’ou are asking the youths to ‘Go back to the land with hoes and cutlasses?
    That was before, welcome. To the digital era. Create an enabling environment by providing capital, high yielding and disease resistant seeds.
    Above all get banks to employ and train Agric graduates as farm extension officers to guide them!

      Why are you telling him to adopt the modern method? Don’t you see that having failed In Bini he has fled to Imam to beg for support for his poor people. The man is well educated and knows science and better but he has put boko aside so that Imam can understand him in. Odua cunning sycophancy, comrade.

      Its a good thing asking these young folks to return to the farm. It shouldnt be with hoes and cutlasses though, it should be with modern ways of farming. Im sure thats exactly what would happen.

      He said “go back to farm”, he never said use your hands to till the ground. People like you can never fail to conjour negativity in things. Change your mindset. The young Oba is a farmer too and he knows how it is been doing. The Minister of Agriculture is a seasoned and big time farmer too, he is into mechanized system of farming so stop your sowing your seed of discord.
