By 2030, the size of the food and agribusiness in Africa will reach $1tn. So, if you’re thinking of how to make money, that’s the sector to be in….@akinwumiadesina
The future of sustainable business belongs to Agriculture. Agriculture has gone beyond the use of hoes, cutlasses, long term plant varieties, large farmlands, large labour etc. It belongs to the creative and problem solving minds with the determination to take charge of various sectors in the industry…..

More excerpts from Dr Akinwumi Adesina’s interview with punchng.com
………..The (Senegalese) president was talking about it: in logistics and transport, producing and processing food, marketing food, services for those that are in agriculture, it’s really fantastic.
There’s a young man who got almost $480,000 from the Bank of Industry in Nigeria. He’s a medical doctor but I can tell you that he’s not using his stethoscope anymore; he’s using different types of equipment.
There’s a great work that’s been going on in Nigeria by the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture; they get all the young people that are doing these amazing things. One of them is a guy called Noel (Mulinganya) from Bukavu in the Democratic Republic of Congo. This guy takes cassava, processes it into high-quality cassava flour and uses it to substitute bread-making in DRC. He makes $4,000 a week doing that. Now, he told us that he’s going to move to $10,000 a week. In the area where they are, they have been able to reduce the amount of import of wheat by almost 28 per cent just doing that …. @akinwumiadesina
