To Be a Billionaire, Think Agriculture Period!! Think like a Billionaire

If Dangote, Otedola, Adeleke, the Dantatas, Alakija, Adenuga etc decide to move into Agriculture, would they ever wait for government subsidies? Lol. Rather, start learning where they take their cuts from, which is tax relieves. Think like a billionaire. 

I think every government program for Agriculture may not work. So, I do not bother myself to join any unprofitable program by the so called alpha and omega. Would billionaires borrow money from all these agricultural loan schemes? I am just wondering. Hmmm. Not sure if I should approach any but my trust for government is zero; hence, it is dead in my world. Government is dead. 

Let us move back to 1960 to 70. How did Awolowo get it done? I still ask myself. How did farmers clear their farmlands during that period to plant cocoa, cashew, rubber, palm, coconut etc. seedlings? How was Awolowo able to pull together the teams that trained these uneducated farmers who did not even know what cocoa looks like to cultivate it? Yet over 90% of the cash crop they planted are what are still available today. Hmmmm! 


Our characters and nature is our seeds. Both Awolowo and those farmers of those days seem to have a godly nature. Why blame govermment when your mind is corrupt. You know within yourself if you see a terrible short corner to take and make it, you would take it, and you know it is wrong. Your nature does not want to farm, but you are doing it because you think it is the last option for you. Why would you not get frustrated? 

Advice: 
Go into farming if you have passion for it. At old age, go into it if it is your hobby. Write business plans free from any government subsidy or intervention. 

When buying land, pick locatioms you wouldnt need the joint help of other farmers. For example, pick farmland you can drive to easily. Not that after purchsse, you are the first to get to farmers association meetings every Thursday to plead with your colleagues to assist with expansion of the road to your farm. Other farmers do not even want it because they do not want their land cut off for road expansion. You are already a failure if you are a victim of issues like this. 

You better learn the prerequisites to farming in Nigeria before you become a victim. 


Government, Back Off! 
Your primary job is to formulate good policies for businesses in Nigeria, and not to get involved in businesses. Get your hands off completely every business include oil. The day you are bold enough to remove your hands off NNPC is the day Nigeria is liberated. Take it or leave it. Any government who sells NNPC is the government for this nation. Can't we all see that corruption's headquarters is NNPC? The president had to make himself the minister of peteoleum. He religated himself, and it is obvious he is the right candidate for the job . Funny approach. No governemnt has ever thought of selling off NNPC.

How I wish Obasanjo had not sold of NITEL. Do we think we can ever have santosnaija and be sharing knowlege like this? Do we think we can ever have the opportunity to tweet Chibok girls #BringBackOurGirls? Do we think Mr. President would still use the same forceful approach used in 1983? Human right violation at its peak. Communication is freedom of speech. NITEL was the evil tool used to curb it in those days, and the reason those military men took advantage of the situation. Goverment, get your hands off business 100%. Stop pretending you are making money for Nigeria while we know you are after your pockets. And funny, you behave like fools exporting our money to develop more those developed countries. Are you not crazy? Do you think you are smart? No! You are all fools. Mumu is your names. First grade mumu. And no one can deliver you from your "mumu- lism". Stop doing our job. 

We keep shouting about Abacha's loot. Do we ever think we can recover all his loot? Now, if Abacha was alive today, I would ask him: Is it worth the stress? Oga Sanni, did you spend one part of the billions you kept for yourself? Did your generation spend one part of the billions too? Oga Sanni, list A to Z of all you used for yourself and your family, is it up to N100 billion naira? So, why did you loot billions of dollars? You just wasted your energy on that unprofitable task, and you destroyed your name in the history of Nigeria. Well, I choose NEVER to follow that route. NEVER. 

Is it only oga Sanni? I wish we had had social media during 1985 to 2003. Hmmm! Then, we would understand how much we made from oil during Gulf War. Oga in Niger, now acting elders states man, how far? Can you honestly say you did what was right and just when you were the leader? Do you really think you are fit to act like an elder to Nigerians? 

Another oga is there in Niger forming good ambassador up and down. Only God knows the hidden truth. I believe your conscience is the tool which will judge you before you leave this earth. Did you really act in the interest of Nigeria when power was handed over to you? If yes, you are free. If not, it is better you speak to your God and ask for forgiveness. To whom more is given, more is expected. However, to whom much more is given, much more is expected. 

Hey! Let us stop deceiving ourselves. Nigeria can never get better if we continue like this. Nigeria is doomed to continue falling if we do not act fast. It will get worse daily with the kind of system we have in place. Young men and ladies. Listen to me. Leave Nigeria Now. Nigeria is not ready for you. Young Nigerians, Nigeria is still a failure. Do not waste your time where there is no hope yet. Nigeria is hopeless as of today. No hope. The next change will be more disastrous. And they are coming with another change. Just watch it. 

Maybe pastors and imams need to start cursing bad leaders instead of praying for them. Why pray for useless people? Why? Since 1960 our churches snd mosques have been praying for Nigeria, yet, no positive change. Personally, I have stopped praying for Nigeria. I use my energy to pray for myself. But another part of me cannot leave Nigeria. While those who are still praying are on it, let me write and address many issues. Perhaps, it can be a tool which can make Nigeria better. I am hopeful Nigeria will be better very soon.

There is hope. Just watch out for this one signal. The day Nigeria sells off NNPC to credible private sector participants is the start of the journey. I am talking about the kind of NITEL privatisation, and not the kind of POWER privatisation. Government is not ready to handle POWER, and it is why it is what it is. I am sure the main regret of OBJ is not getting POWER right before leaving office. 
My opinion though, Chrisantus Michael J.
