“Agriculture is lucrative. I thank Governor Okowa for making me who I am. From poultry farming, I have diversified to crop production. I cultivate tomato, pepper, onion, yam, cassava and carrot.
“I feed my family from the proceeds from my farm all year round. I bought a car, one acre of land and completed my building from the proceeds.
“I offer consultancy services to other farmers too. At present, I have only 100 broilers and 250 layers because I am working to bounce back after I survived a fatal motor accident.”
