The Saga Between Crude Oil And Agriculture In Nigeria, What Nigerians Should Do [Opinion]

THE SAGA BETWEEN CRUDE OIL AND AGRICULTURE IN NIGERIA.

So yes Crude oil hit a negative figure recently and agriculture appears to be the next big thing.

We must have read several articles and stories that reflects the many untapped potentials of the agricultural sector in Nigeria.

The business of Agriculture is not about following or listening to sooth sayers and or hearsay but is in the proper identification of an existing gap in the value chain of interest and plugging into it.

To put this in better perspective, you might be interested in the oil palm value chain and plug into palm kernel oil(used in food production, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, feed stock etc) or the banana value chain and plug into fiber production.

The key thing is to conduct a due diligence exercise before you invest your hard earned money, start small, be ready to face the challenges, study consumer behaviour, put in place quick response mechanism and maintain a steady growth.

The difference is in the GAP, the GAP is the difference. So therefore carve a unique nitch for yourself and grow accordingly. Equip yourself with good personal/interpersonal skills, be flexible, open minded, be disciplined, get yourself a mentor and be mentorable, conduct constant self evaluation (tell yourself the hard/honest truth from time to time) and also thirst for knowledge, it has its inexhaustible benefit.
