DAILY POST reports that Aregbesola gave the charge while delivering a speech at the 6th Convocation Ceremony of Fountain University, Osogbo. He explained that there was no aspect of life that could do without agriculture, saying Nigerian graduates must henceforth stop searching for formal jobs that realistically remained elusive.

“There is need for us , especially our young graduand’s to lead the nation in promoting agriculture as the only realistic surviving alternative to economy. We must not but embrace farming because it is only agriculture that has direct links to all aspects of life.

“Nigeria has grown to the stage through which her food production capacity must be urgently expanded to meet the general needs of the citizenry and as well enhance exportation. The time to enhance productivity has come. We must all embrace productivity. We must produce whatever we desire to consume”, he added.
