“We need to change our ethics and re-arrange our values on agriculture, this will be a great and appreciate by the people. Instead of looking into our land lying values and overgrown by weeds, but we need to expose our land for agricultural value and avoid thriving by mosquitos and weeds for germination”, Bajela said.
He added that agriculture was a key value in enhancing Nigerian youths potential when keying into it, noting that it generate more economical productive when there was a shortage of employment generation by government and it would create window opportunities for the teeming youths in the country if they were really ready to key into farming.
