Thank God my six hours on the new farm today was successful, I am proud to say I am a Farmer. Livestock and Fish farming is a very tedious one,moreover when you do everything manually. Mechanised farming is the best but Nigeria is a lucky nation where all what you have is natural, devoid of chemical.

As an environmental, human and anti-corruption activist, Farming should be seen as a fundamental way to build a non-oil based economy. Kudos to Prof. Omotoye Olorode who initiates me into farming. Chief Gani Fawehinmi Maize Farm along Akure road in Ondo and Tuns Farms owned by my benefactor, Asiwaju Olatunde Badmus were the two farms where I developed to a true farmer.

As a livestock and fish farmer , I have no regret for being a farmer, it is self independent and self reliance, my two farms today is a testimony that hard work and consistency pays.

My farms has also generates employments to the glory of God and the benefit of mankind, this is what sustained our activism over the year and the reason why I can path way with anybody who infringe on my core principle, a man without principle is like an uncharged phone.
