THE GOLD MINE RIGHT UNDER OUR NOSES
There was once a time in the history of Nigeria, when we flourished and made wealth solely from the proceeds of agriculture and things we just fine until we discovered crude oil in the year 1956, then we joined ranks of oil producers in 1958 when our first oil field came on stream.
Since the time we experienced this monumental change and transition, agriculture began to suffer serious decline.
We have now to a point where what we have depended on for so long (crude oil) can no longer sustain us.
We are a stage where there’s a worldwide decline in quantity and value of major world mineral resources and it has been predicted that by the year 2050, the world’s mineral reserve will run to an end, hence, the need to seek, explore and exploit alternatives sources of sustenance, including alternative sources of income and energy.
However, this has been a major source of concern in the Nigeria of today.
Although we know that agriculture has the answers to our needs, but the not so lucrative appeal with which agriculture has been painted with since the oil boom has made it hard to harness its potentials.
The proportion of people who practice agriculture to that of those of who seek white collar employment and other forms of investment is very ridiculous.
Although, the government keep working on plans to resuscitate the agricultural sector and restore it to its place of pride, no government has been fully able to achieve the dream over the year.
That is however because this is not a problem, the government alone can solve.
The government can make policies and setup parastatals and corresponding infrastructure to facilitate this resuscitation process, but the government alone cannot see it through.
There is the need for individuals and private organisations to rise up and challenge the status quo and harness the potentials deeply embedded in the agricultural sector.
The agricultural sector has been a gold mine sitting right under our noses for so long because we failed to recognize the numerous potentials it possesses, ranging from food production, income generation, alternative sources of energy, even massive employment opportunities to mention but a few.
FPE Foods and Agro-allied Ltd., having recognized this problem and the potentials in the agricultural sector, decided to join the league of change makers to mine the gold out of agriculture, employing dynamism and professionalism in its approach to solving problems such as poverty, malnutrition and unemployment.
It is generally accepted that lack of professionalism is one of the greatest obstacles to development in any nation, and to overcome this challenge and attract the required growth and development into the country, professionalism and dynamism must be prioritized.
