He said: “As a government, we will continue to encourage our people to go into agriculture and exploit the   opportunities   of agriculture.

“We will continue to support ventures and give facilities to our youths   for agricultural purposes.   This is to ensure that  farming is made profitable  across the state.

“Agriculture alone can employ more people than any other business. The oil industry is nowhere near   the agricultural sector.”
