“We canโ€™t have abundant land and mineral resources with huge agricultural and industrial potential to continue to depend on other States for basic food and household products.

“We have a proven reserve of mineral resources including industrial clay, silica, lignite, kaolin, tar sand, decorative rocks, limestone, etc. in addition to our veritable history of competitive advantage in cash crops such as oil palm, cocoa, rubber, and timber. We also have great potential in producing staple crops such as rice, maize, yam, plantain, cassava, etc.
