    Dude has solutions to all Nigeria’s problems on twitter………Isn’t He a senator? If He was this vocal in the house, I guess Nigeria would have gotten somewhere by now…….
    Point is, i’m tired of just reading JUST READING all these things and see Nigerians still suffering.

    Sir, where did you get your stats from? According to Vanguard Newspaper, last year, Nigeria imported $2bn worth of agricultural produce. Besides, Nigeria spent $6bn importing cars. Should we also add manufacturing cars to the list of the things we need to produce, since we are spending money “exorbitantly” on cars from abroad? (the list goes on)

    As it stands, 30% of Nigerians work in the agricultural sector, and Nigeria is one of the largest producers of agricultural products in the world. Isn’t it about time we talked more about the structural problems at play (especially to do with our ailing supply chain structure, poor means of transportation, and lack of security) which affect our ability to compete internationally?

    What do I know; I’m just making nonsense.

    This man is straight forwardly smart. We import a lot of preservative laden foods from turkey, other kinds of meats fruits vegetables and what not. When we have fertile rich soil. …illnesses alien to nigeria are beginning to appear….not rocket science…i shudder at the way Nigeria works. Small business should be encouraged manufacturing should be developed. ..Here in America we pay an arm and a leg to pay for basic organic foods..in Nigeria these foods should be available. ..

    @ Letty, the man is only smart when its convenient for him it seems . Why has he chose to Ignore the N36m car scandal that he and his fellows senators are involved in, and instead blind side Nigerians with the rubbish he’s spewing on twitter?

    It always amazes me that we Nigerians took over 50 years to back ourselves into this corner but we expect solutions to be instantaneous, miraculous. With the exception of few people, the leaders we voted into power are a representation of us,(if given the chance and opportunity to acquire without check). Since the leaders are too selfish and don’t want to change and show good example from the Top down, then the masses must show them change by example, not just by lip-service. Same time we must show them it is not “business-as-usual.”. We have power in numbers!

    ????????????

    America is the world’s largest agricultural exporter: Percentage of WORKING population that are farmers: 2%

    France second: 3%

    Netherlands third: 2%

    Germany 4th: 1%

    Nigeria currently has a working population of 73.4m(according sha) anyways I’ll be generous. 3% of 1,480,000. Senator Bruce’s plan will create 1.4m jobs.

    Won’t solve anything. Agriculture CURRENTLY employs around 30% of our population. 30% compared to between 1 and 3% for the world’s largest producers. See the problem?

    Mr. Senator, kindly use your Bayelsa State or Senatorial District as a sample population to start experimenting all these your “common sense” talks (ideas) let’s see how it works out. I still think you are a misfit in the Senate though.

    I thought about my previous comment..but do the youth want to become farmers…every one wants to work in the bank…he works in the Senate propose these solutions there and then give us the results
