Egbon, the rain falling in this rainy season is a special one oh. Flood everywhere; left right and center. Kai, and it’s really affecting farming in this country
I’m telling you, the thunder and lightning is even more serious than last year
I hope you have a lightning absorber on your roof?
Who doesn’t? Didn’t you hear that lightning killed 8 cows in Ondo?
Haha, lightning wey don dey do correct press-up since January. Na this kind lightening those Doma workers for send the Local Government Chairman make he receive inspiration to pay their salary
Him still never pay them?
He hasn’t paid oo. I read that they even locked him up for 3 hours
Where did they lock him?
I don’t know. Maybe in his office. This thing about our borders ehn, what do you think?
I agree with Osinbajo, if we continue allowing the Chinese and others to bring in things, it will completely kill farming.
How will it kill farming? The only way it will kill farming is if we continue importing farmed goods. Goods that we can farm here like oranges
What if I told you that almost all consumer goods are manufactured with farmed products? Do you know that palm oil is found in almost all body creams and cosmetic products?
Importing body cream does not stop us from exporting palm oil. Does it?
No, it doesn’t but if we close our borders to the importation of cosmetic products, we would be forced to produce our own cosmetic products and also export them.
Okay, Egbon let me ask you a question.
Can you remember when the government told us to stop eating kpomo because it is also used to make leather and it should be preserved for such?
Mba mba mba, let me finish. Where are all the leather goods that the kpomo we did not eat made? Did you produce any shoe with the uneaten kpomo?
Mazi, you are getting it all wrong.
I am not getting anything wrong. You see ehn, our government is very good with declaration without preparation, gbam. Egbon, you are not the only one that can speak English
I understand what you are saying but we have to start somewhere. You are talking as if this is not what this same China we are importing heavily from did. They locked down their borders
Yes, they did but they provided a very conducive economic environment for manufacturing and exportation. They even decreased the value of their currency to encourage more patronage. Is it with hand and leg that farmers will start producing megatons of palm oil for cosmetic products? Or is it generator that we will use to turn kpomo to leather shoes, with the current price of fuel nowadays? Nna ehn, leave matter for Mathias
I understand your point but the truth is that something must force a man to work if it is not advised then it will be hunger and starvation.
Na you dey talk. Go farm go see as dem dey suffer to produce small crops. Work wey machine fit do within two minutes
The government will provide the machinery for the farmers.
Make dem provide dem first before dem lock boarder. If you wan chop pounded yam, you no go carry soup first before the yam; na the yam you go carry first before the soup.
Mazi, I don hear. If I no commot here this argument no go end today.
So na go be that?
No, go ooo. My mouth don dey pain me. Till tomorrow
