I encountered some Liberians today and the point of our discussion was the need to intentionally invest in agriculture. Our economy could skyrocket if we did that.
While it is true that we need good roads we cannot make road construction a priority over growing what we eat and eat what we grow. This is in no way intended to discredit government agenda but I sincerely believe agriculture could provide thousands of jobs for our youths and other Liberians.
If we were to invest a billion dollars into agriculture we could turn our nation's economy around in at least 12 years. I think this a non political rallying call to utilize the soil to restore our nation from ruins to riches.
