CELEBRITY GIST: Veteran Nollywood actor Victor Osuagwu has urged the federal government of Nigeria to reduce the rate of unemployment by investing in Agriculture because farmers never lack.
The comic actor spoke at an a event organized by the African farmers and cultural organisation in Isolo Lagos, on Friday 9th March. He said Nigerians should invest in agriculture for a better future.
In his words:
“If you go to Europe, a lot of people are farming and that is why they don’t lack food. They have thousands of farm foods to eat but the case in Nigeria is different. Everybody wants to work in a bank or an oil company and the other means are being neglected. I give kudos to AACO empowerment initiative in partnership with federal government to improve agricultural production.”
Victor Osuagwu went on to say:
“I am preparing myself for retirement because there will be time we all go to our various areas to go and relax, eat fresh food and move away from the hustling and bustling of the urban city. I’m presently the president general of my community. And i’m a farmer.”
The comic actor concluded:
I’m planning to expand so as to start the exporting outside Nigeria. That is the reason i’m here from this programme. What i do now is that i give it out to people. I don’t buy bag of rice for people” – Victor Osuagwu.
