Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has reiterated that agric business is key to the development of the country.
Obasanjo made this known at the 2016 Independence Day programme organised by the Useful Youth, Owu Baptist Church, Abeokuta on Saturday.
He spoke on the topic “Nigeria Development for Nigerians by Nigerians”.
The former president said that agric-business was the only area the nation could beat development and generate millions of employment if taken seriously.
On the independence celebration, he said Nigerians who had lived to witness the 56th independence day celebration should give glory to God.
“Whoever that has lived to witness the celebration of today, we should thank God, things are not what they should be but we should pray that next year will be better than this year.“
We thank God for those who are alive, we prayed for the souls of those who have laboured for this country and who have passed on rest in perfect peace.
