A ministerial nominee, Uchechukwu Ogah on Wednesday said that Nigeria can feed the entire world because the country is very endowed.
Ogah, from Abia state, said this while answering questions from senators during the screening of ministerial nominees in Abuja.
Ogah said, “We don’t need to depend on only oil. I believe that if we develop our agricultural sector, we can equally develop and create jobs for our teeming youths.
“Take for instance, if you build farmland where you can house over 150 youths and you provide enabling accommodation for them and you give them all the necessary amenities. I can tell you that these youths will be powerful to turn an entire piece of land to something that will create revenue for the entire country.
“We as a nation can export and feed the entire world. We have a capacity, we have the population, we have all the resources that are required which is the human capital which is the best that is needed. So I believe that if we can do that, we can actually improve in this nation.”
