A call has been issued by Apostle Francis Amoako Attah, the Founder and Leader of Parliament Chapel International (PCI), for governments throughout Africa to modernize their agriculture in order to make it more appealing to the youth who are constantly traveling to the West in search of greener pastures.
It is his opinion that there is no justification for young Africans from developing nations to go overseas and engage in activities that they might have done in their home countries for the benefit of the country as well as their own personal gain.
According to him, agriculture was the beginning of civilization, and despite the fact that mankind has evolved tremendously, agriculture continues to be very essential.
Farming and fishing, according to him, are the two most important jobs that God granted Adam from the very beginning of existence.
According to Apostle Francis Amoako Attah, the significance of agriculture is more obvious, but the reality is that every country in the world is dependent on agriculture for one reason or another because it is a source of raw materials, it accounts for a significant portion of what is traded internationally, it is critical to a country’s development, it can help heal the environment, and it can provide employment opportunities for youth in particular.
Farming produces a variety of raw materials that are used in major industries in ways that many people are unaware of, such as the production of pharmaceuticals, diesel fuel, plastic, and other products. He added that many of these raw materials are derived from agricultural products such as cotton, sugar, wood, or palm oil.
During a discussion of trade, he asserted that developing countries continue to derive the majority of their national income from agricultural exports, and that while developed countries are no longer as reliant on agriculture as they once were, their economies would suffer significantly if all exports were to be stopped overnight.
It enables people to find work.
The agricultural business is still one of the most important sources of employment, and in many locations, it is seeing a resurgence in recent years.
Agriculture, according to Apostle Francis Amoako Attah, also known as THE SEER, has the ability to damage or cure the environment, explaining that when farmers promote biodiversity on their property, it improves the environment.
He said that increased biodiversity resulted in healthier soil, reduced erosion, greater water conservation, and healthier pollinators, among other benefits.
“All of this is excellent news for the ecosystem as a whole, and agriculture will continue to play an essential role in the circle of life.”
When speaking at the Farmers Day celebration in Ghana, the Man of God recommended the government to make farming more appealing since it is the most important vocation God has given to humanity.
“God gave Adam the ability to produce and fish…one individual was given four mighty rivers.” In his words, “we should avoid depleting our water supplies and destroying our fish populations.”
He also emphasized that it is harmful for the general public to denigrate the agricultural community and industries, as they are the foundation of all development and prosperity in the country.
In his opinion, the moment has come for everyone, particularly the government, to empower agriculture by modernizing it and making it an appealing business endeavor for young people who are energised to keep the country’s growth agenda going forward.
