Oil, Gas Can’t Feed Nigeria’s Rising Population — Obasanjo

Former Nigeria president, Olusegun Obasanjo, claimed that in light of Nigeria's rising population, oil and gas are no longer sufficient to feed the country.

This information was revealed by Obasanjo over the weekend when the leaders of Mzough U Tiv (MUT), the leading socio-cultural group in Benue State's Tiv territory, paid him a visit at his OOPL Penthouse residence in the city of Abeokuta, the capital of Ogun State.

In a statement released by his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Akinyemi, Obasanjo urged Nigerians to view their nation as belonging to everyone in order to "rescue it and return it to what God has made it to be."

Obasanjo declared that “only farming and agric business can tackle the nation’s growing population.”

He emphasised that agriculture, not oil, would be the only way to feed the country.

The former president emphasised that he had left his arson on his farm in Benue behind him and urged the Tiv people to concentrate on farming.

The socio-political group gave Obasanjo the honorary title of "Great Warrior" of Tiv country, and he declared he would start an industrial in Benue the next year.

Iorbee Ihagh, the group's leader, had already asked Obasanjo, among other things, to establish a fruit juice business in Benue.
