Nigeria’s business tycoon, Aliko Dangote says Nigerians should pray there should be a drop in the oil and gas production in the country in a bid to help government focus on the agricultural sector.
Dangote, owner of the Dangote Group, has always been at the forefront of promoting and developing agriculture in Nigeria.
With a rich set of companies within Africa, Dangote, who is one of the richest men in Africa, stated that it’s important for the government and investors to start thinking towards the direction of investing in the agricultural sector.
“We should pray that oil prices remain low. This helps wean us off the dependency on revenues from petroleum. We must take oil to be the icing on the cake. We already have the cake,” he added.
Technology, of course, helps us a lot and our factories are state of the art with the use of robotics but we shouldn’t be overly tech-oriented to create wealth.”
