My vision is for a country that grows what it eats – Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday visited his farm in his hometown, Daura, Katsina State. The President who had earlier arrived in his hometown in the early hours of Friday after his two-day official visit to Kano State, spent the weekend in Daura before leaving the country to participate at the ‘One Planet Summit’ in Paris.
The summit,is jointly organised by the United Nations, the World Bank Group, and the French Government in partnership with non-governmental organisations concerned about reversing the negative effects of climate change, like Bloomberg Philanthropies, holds at the eco-friendly La Seine Musicale, situated on the picturesque Seguin Island in western Paris.
After inspecting his farm, Buhari shared his photographs of the farm on his Twitter handle with a caption, expressing his optimism in a Nigeria that is self sufficient.
Buhari wrote, “I’m spending a few days at home in Daura before I travel to France for the One Planet Summit.
“Today (Sunday), I paid a visit to my farm. I grow fruits and vegetables, and keep cattle. I hope this will inspire one more person to take up farming. My vision is for a country that grows what it eats.”
