President Muhammadu Buhari has declared the current slump in the price of crude oil at the international market was a blessing for Nigeria in the country’s bid to “diversify and revitalise the national economy.”

Speaking at the opening ceremony of the National Agricultural Show in Keffi, Nasarawa State, yesterday, President Buhari, who was represented by the Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources, Chief Audu Ogbeh, further reaffirmed his administration’s commitment to harnessing the huge agricultural potential of various parts of the country.

“After almost 40 years of neglect, agriculture has come to occupy its rightful place in national development. This administration is wholly committed to realising the wealth that could accrue to the country from our endowments.
