The quest for the diversification of the Nigerian economy has no doubt hit a cord with many Nigerians, especially young people with an unquenchable thirst for entrepreneurial endeavours.

The recourse and adherence to the quest for diversification, from research and daily realities, is more pronounced in the areas of agriculture and agribusiness, an area several Nigerian youths and start-ups are playing hard and smart.

One of such start-ups is Ganado Farms, a multi-crop and integrated agribusiness involved in crop cultivation and livestock breeding.

The success story of Ganado Farms is one many Nigerians will find inspiring and at the same time, surprising. This is because the reach and scope of the company, which started off in 2017, to say the least, is phenomenal.

He said: “We believe strongly that agriculture is still man’s oldest profession and as long as people and even animals eat, the sky is the beginning.

Unlike many other companies that focus only on farming and production of farm products, Ganado Farms is multi-faceted, as it also offers agricultural training and consultancy.

“We help people who are looking at going into agriculture but probably do not have the time and the experience to get started to generate maximum profit by helping them acquire the land and farming for them based on solid insurance and expertise. We also help sell to our offtakers after harvest.

Ahead of the 2023 presidential elections, both Christian and Muslim clerics on Friday claimed the Holy Spirit has anointed the Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.

The clerics made this known in Abuja at the intercession prayer and declaration of support by 1,000 Inter-denominational and Inter-religious clergymen for Bello to emerge as Nigeria’s next President

They added that they owe Bello a duty to see that he actualises his ambition because it would be for the betterment of Nigeria.

Although, the organisers claimed the clerics at the intercession prayer were 1,000, however, the clerics in attendance were not up to 100.

In his remarks, Bishop Prince Madaki said it has been prophesied and by the grace of God, through prayerful intercessions, that the Kogi Governor is the anointed son who will lead Nigeria from May 2023 to great battles.

He noted that the clerics vouched for Bello as a man of peace and one who will take the country to greater heights.

He said, “And in the eyes of men and as revealed by the Holy Spirit, we have heard a voice from the wilderness, chanting loudly and calling on the underrated David, the son of Jesse in the person of His Excellency, Gov. Yahaya Adoza Bello to take over the throne of his forebears as Nigeria’s next President in 2023”

Madaki added: “And in accordance with the directive of the Holy Spirit, we have the rare privilege and honour to re-baptise him as we are gathered now.

“Therefore on this divine mission and today, Gov. Bello will be known and called Yahaya Adoza “David” Bello henceforth. It has been prophesied and by the grace of God, through these prayerful intercessions, Yahaya Adoza David Bello is the anointed son who will lead Nigeria from May 2023 to great battles and God will give him victory over all adversaries. ”

On his part, Sheik Mahmoud Abubakar said the presidential hopeful has all the requirements as enlisted in the Holy Book, hence, the reason why they were united in one voice in prayers for him.

He pointed out that it was that time of the year when all sorts of promises are made by politicians in the quest to gain favours from the electorate.

”This is the time politicians would come with empty promises to deceive the people and once they get what they want, they leave the people in misery, he said.

“As a people united in faith, we are gathered here to pray for that good man from Kogi State who has indicated interest to rule Nigeria in 2023. That good man from Kogi State who has the fear of Allah in him. That man who Allah SWT blessed us with in times of need.

“I can tell you all that our convergence here is not for the cameras, but an avenue to render prayers for one of the most patriotic Nigerians in the person of Governor Yahaya Bello, who has signified interest to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.”

“Nigerians should not go to sleep because of ...ponement. The federal government is not saying that it will not increase the price. It said that it will not increase it now but will do it later.

“But, we feel that whether now or later, such a decision to increase the price of petroleum will compound the suffering of Nigerians.

“Any attempt to hike the price of petroleum now will further compound the suffering of Nigerians. The cost of living at this material time will be higher.
