Yeah.....,and sadly all dis exportable commodities that cud generate revenues for the country on the daily are put to waste by the hour in naija

Omoh Sado said...

.... Making good sense. Goverment should pay rapt attention to agriculture, and develop factors that will aid it eg TRANSPORTATION. That's the way forward for our Economy.

They have been making noise about Agriculture in Nigeria, we will do this we will do that. Instead of doing that they are playing snake in the monkey shadow.

True that! I served in Benue State between 2012-13, oranges waste their, especially around the Tiv areas. A big bucket of mango is also sold for 1h. Government should focus on Agriculture to help the oil based economy.

Concentrating more on agriculture will for sure yield good results. May God open the heart and eyes of our leaders.

na wa oh...and we buy just one for 50 naira in lagos while a whole bucket goes for as low as 120...the major challenge we have like he said is storage and converting orange to other uses like the juice etc.

Uche Anaekwe said...

We have the lands,fertile soil and the manpower yet we are neck deep in poverty and debt cause of misplacement of priority and resources. We need to go back to what we were originally known for ie Agriculture

It's obviously not just agriculture that needs to be focused on here, but food processing and food preservation. the whole value chain. Orange juice, orange jam, dried oranges, orange peel for aroma production Etc.
