SYOB: Let talk about agriculture which is one area you have championed as an agripreneur.. Why is it that the present graduates venture only into white collar jobs instead of taking to agriculture and what is your advice?


EAE: Unless the youth are properly enlighten and re orientate, they will not take to Agriculture as it is now. Government has to do lot of to create a sustainable environment for 4 he young one to take to Agriculture

As long as there are easy money on the other sector of the economy Agriculture will not be attractive to youth.  You have to love and understand Agriculture before you can take to it

SYOB: That is insightful!

EAE: (Cuts in): The orientation of our youth today which is given to us by our elders is that you can make money without working! And that is not possible in Agriculture
Agriculture is work and eat.

SYOB: And what effort would you want government to make including partnerships in order to make these areas attractive to the youth

EAE: The government must be able to provide and create marker for 4 he agricultural produce and they should also make fund available for agricultural activity
The funds in commercial banks today cannot be applied to farming. You cannot go into agricultural venture with 28% interest rate!

SYOB: That is true. And I also buy correctly your idea that there must first be the spirit of labor of love as it will also be of no use giving loans to those who do not want agriculture in the first case. What do you think Buhari's government should do more in terms of incentive to farmers in Nigeria

EAE: Let the Bank of Agriculture be properly position to give fund at 5% to farmer and you will see the rapid development if agricultural  Let the government continue with the development of Agricultural Value chain. Let them developing private operated marketing board. Let The bank of Agriculture be properly restructure to be in all local government and let them be financed to be able to give fund to farmer at single digit. Let the government subsidized Agricultural Mechanization.

EAE: I have a lot of role models and mentors both living and the dead. Jesus Christ, Dr. Normal Vincent Peals, Napoleon Hill, Brian Tracy and many more others

SYOB: That is great! And I see your ideas and living freely from fear but soaring to be who you were born to be on earth has paid you off too from, I believe your studying your mentors. But someone out there could  be tempted to ask why you believe in Jesus and you are an herbalist. Could you explain this?

EAE : Hmmm, people usually confuse an herbalist with a witch doctor. I am an herbalist and not a witch doctor! I study herbs and use it to cure ailment. If you have ever eaten vegetable in your life, you are an herbalist! God gave us all herbs for our uses
