Olusegun Obasanjo has claimed that oil and gas are no longer sufficient to feed the country.

Obasanjo made this announcement over the weekend during a visit from the Mzough U Tiv (MUT), the leading sociocultural group in Benue State’s Tiv territory, to his OOPL Penthouse property in the city of Abeokuta, the capital of Ogun State.

Obasanjo urged Nigerians to perceive their nation as being for everyone in a statement made available to DAILY POST by his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Akinyemi, in order to “rescue it and restore it to what God has created it to be.”

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

He reiterated that farming and agric business would be the only means to feed the nation, not oil.

The former president charged the Tiv people to focus on farming, stressing that he had put his arson on his farm in Benue behind him.

Obasanjo, who was conferred with the title of a “Great Warrior” of TIV land by the socio-political group, said he would establish an industry in Benue next year.

Earlier in his words, the leader of the group, Iorbee Ihagh, had requested Obasanjo, among other things, to set up a fruit juice industry in Benue.
