Former President of Nigeria,  Muhammadu Buhari has advised Nigerians to keep growing their own food and control population growth.

Buhari expressed delight that a certain number of Nigerians have started returning to the farm, saying it’s the way to go at the moment.

But the former president also expressed concerns on the uncontrollable rise in population thus asking for immediate attention before it’s too late.

The Katsina born politician made this known when speaking  to journalists after participating in the Kofor Arewa Eid prayer in Daura on Sunday, in light of the current conditions in the nation.

“The need for greater discussion and awareness about this problem, (uncontrolled population growth) as well as a need to invest more in education and health.

“Let us grow our own food. We have shown that we can do it. This is not the time to relent when we see prices going up. Let us buy what is produced in the country.

“The foundation of a prosperous and stable country has been laid by successive governments, and I encourage our youth, in particular, to continue to play an active role in various nation-building efforts,” he said.
