Several weeks ago, I saw a tweet posted by Sunday Ogidigbo, the lead pastor of Holyhill Church, Abuja.

I was pleased at the sheer ingenuity of such project and if the reverence and acquiescence that Nigerians are known to ideally show on religious leaders is taken into perspective, I knew without a doubt that the huge potential that could be unleashed had finally come upon us.

Beyond tweets, a call to action:

What if Religious bodies take up the conversation about the immense benefits that are inherent in re-focusing on Agriculture?

What if more Pastors and Imams take up the baton and lead the several young folks that look up to them to shift their gaze on Agriculture?

What if the abundant energy of young Nigerians are galvanized and geared towards Agriculture?

What if the Altars and Pulpits are used as a platform to speak truth to power and demand that our Government should commit more funding into Agriculture?

The questions abound but I believe that simple acts like this as showcased by Holyhill Church if replicated by several other religious organizations is the way to go.

It is not enough to teach faith based principles on how to succeed in life without bringing focus to practical solutions that such principles can impact.

This is a call to action for government to spend more on agriculture and encourage the replacement generation of Nagropreneurs!
