The growing population of the Country without a corresponding growth in the Agriculture sector could spell doom for the Country.
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo
There is therefore the need for the Nigerian banks to invest more in the Agriculture sector for increased productivity and food security.
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo stated this in Abeokuta at a meeting with bank executives.
According to him, population is supposed to be an asset for a Nation but if it is not carefully managed, It could turn to a liability resulting in crisis.
He added that increased funding of the Agricultural sector would also help to provide employment for the citizens especially the youth.
