Buhari’s aide hails FG policy on agric

The Special Adviser to the President on Economic Matters, Dr Adeyemi Dipeolu, said Nigeria must leverage agriculture to grow its economy.

Dipeolu spoke on ‘Continental Free Trade Agreement: The Benefits and Challenges to Nigeria’ at the second Distinguished Personality Lecture organised by Babcock University’s Department of History and International Studies in Ilishan-Remo, Ogun State,

He said Nigeria stood to reap maximum gains from the continental free trade agreement if the country engages more in productive activities.

He said, “Chinese became the manufacturing power house of the world not by wringing their hands and mourning but by producing.

“Chinese were still producing when the WTO agreement didn’t favour them, and by the time the playground was levelled, they took advantage of all the opportunities and now America is trying to keep their goods out of their country.

“For Nigeria to grow her economy faster, she must embrace agriculture.”

He urged Nigerians to innovate and use ICT to turn the country around.

The Vice-Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Ademola Tayo, said the essence of the lecture was to foster the ideals of better Nigeria and be agents of economic transformation.
