Description NIGED:POLITICS:FARMING:PERSONALITIES:NOV 1962 – Agriculture – Foundation Of Our Wealth. This is Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa – the farmer. Pictured at his farm at Bauchi, N. Nigeria. Sir Abubakar drives a tractor. This is the era of the new farmer. Young, industrious men will be taught new methods so that the great and latent wealth of the land can be fully exploited. Nearly £1½ million has been put by for research. Farm settlements are being set up. And Nigeria’s agricultural revolution is getting under way. Eighty per cent, of Nigeria’s 40 million citizens depend on agriculture for their livelihood, while half the country’s gross national produce comes from the land.
