It is acknowledged worldwide that agriculture and Agric-Investment are so important and very crucial to our economic growth and development, just like it is a major factor and nucleus as the main livelihood sources for the majority of our people. It accounts for one-fifth (1/5) of most country’s gross domestic product and supplies the raw materials to two-third (2/3) of any country’s non-oil manufacturing sector.
Thus, it is strategic for national development as a great investment, which has the impetus to draw more people out of poverty. A well-planned agricultural sector can rake in manifold benefits to small holding farmers and further augment the development of agriculture value chains. Indeed and in truth, it has the potential of providing for the poverty stricken people of our time.
The world’s famous Microsoft guru and mogul Bill Gates, at different times of public presentations made the following inspirational statements about agriculture:
- “Agricultural productivity is key to reduce world poverty”
- “If you care about the poorest, you care about agriculture”
- “Investments in agriculture are the best weapons against hunger and poverty.”
In a similar scenario, the champion man on top of the list of Africa’s richest people Aliko Dangote, once said in one of his public presentation that “Africa will become the food basket of the world.”
The president of African Development Bank, Dr. Akinwumi also said in a public expose “Agriculture Development and Agric-Investment will be the surest way for the African continent.”
In consonance with the above stated philosophy of gurus and moguls, TIIDAA decided to take pragmatic actions by unfolding programs and projects towards laudable heights in Agric Development in Africa.
