Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has warned that the revenue from oil and gas exports alone can no longer feed Nigeria as the country’s population continues to increase.

Obasanjo spoke when the leaders of the apex socio-cultural group in Tiv land of Benue State visited him at his Presidential Library residence in Abeokuta in Ogun state.

The former president noted that only farming and agricultural related businesses could engage the growing population.

In 2019, Obasanjo called for greater investment in farming, saying crude oil, Nigeria’s economic mainstay is gone forever.
