When We Were In Govt, Nigeria Was No.1 In Producing Palm Oil All Over The World Unlike Today-Okunnu

While Alhaji Abdullateef Olufemi Okunnu (Former Federal Minister of Works & Housing) was talking with the media, he said that the Nigerian government of today doesn't care much about agriculture, just because Nigeria has crude oil.

The Nigerian crude oil has pushed aside agriculture in the country, and the government of Nigeria today doesn't care about agriculture. He said "When we were in government, Nigeria was number one in producing palm oil all over the world. Then, we had Tin in Plateau state, Rubber, Cocoa in the west and Palm oil in the south".

"Nigeria had all this in abundant then, and Nigeria made a lot of money from exporting all this agricultural goods abroad. But since Nigeria discovered crude oil, we left agriculture to face crude oil. Are we gonna drink the oil?".

Alhaji Abdullateef Olufemi Okunnu said that Nigeria was doing well in agriculture and also making name as the number one country in producing palm oil and other agricultural products, but today, all these have been flushed away, and no one cares anymore.
