NO any nation can survive in this contemporary without agriculture, this because it is the economic back born of some of the developed nations of the world.
That is to say if agriculture is taken away or not properly harness, then hunger looms and abject poverty is set to overwhelmed a nation and when that is done it cripples the economy of a nation, and as such poverty and hunger are inevitable.
Some people are naturally life-supporters in giving out to the general public from what the omnipresence, omnipotent God has blessed them with and the best attainments in life is when the general public mafficks one’s services or achievements towards his task and good actions to humanity and his society in general and there is no iota of doubt that Sarkin Shanu is such a name that is being written with golden pen in the history of this great country.
No wonder, the Sarkin Shanu’s foundation led by an amiable, Superhuman, industrious and a world best farmer, entrepreneur and a philanthropist of our time with a global recognition, Engineer Abubakar Muhammad Bello, the Gombe state coordinator of the Rice Farmers Association of Nigeria, deem it necessary to bring to an end poverty, hunger and rice importation into the country is by empowering and equipping the common man with the requisite and finance to become an employer of labour
Sarkin Shanu’s foundation, is not only out to encourage poor rice farmers to go to the farm, but is with the goal of making peasant rice farmers to be wealthy, thereby having the resources to do mechanized farming of a very high breed rice that can compete with China in terms of quality and quantity.
Engineer Abubakar Muhammad, in an effort to complement the federal government policies in diversifying the economy, by engaging in agriculture which was neglected because of the discovery of crude oil in the country, has not just worked as Rice Farmers Association of Nigeria Gombe state coordinator, but has come out with his own foundation to put smiles and hope not only to people of his community but other states as well
It would interest our readers to know that Sarkin Shanu has done wonderfully well in the aspects of production of quality improve varieties of rice, through empowering farmers with soft and non interest loans to boast rice production in the country.
More also, the foundation is into training and retraining of not only adult, but youths to pick interest in rice farming by sending some of the interested youths abroad to learn new methods of rice farming and when they are through with the training ,the foundation give them funds to start up something and be creators of wealth that others can benefit from.
Sarkin Shanu, is no doubt a highly place personality, philanthropy, Superhuman and industrious to the cause of the poor and at the same time Sarkin Shanu is such a man with a heart of gold, who can sacrifice even the last Kobo in his pocket for someone to live.
That is his cardinal aim in life, that people be comfortable while he is alive in because no any work in the grave, as such he uses any opportunity at his disposal to bring as many people as he could out of poverty and hunger.
Not only in the aspect of improving quality rice production, Sarkin Shanu is also in the humanitarian services, when there is a disaster in the community he ensure that his resources that God had blessed him with is been given out to cushion the effects of the disaster in the lives of the people.
He is also a friend and a father to the fatherless, this is also so glaring in the manner in which he uses his resources and connection to send children who’s parents are dead to the school and also give them scholarships so that they can also grow to be philanthropist like him and also contribute their own quota in uplifting people out of poverty in the society.
To the widows, just like the holy books thought, that widows should be well taken care of.
Sarkin Shanu’s foundation has a special scheme for widows and a skills acquisition and vocational centre where widows are been trained and after the training funds are been given to them to establish businesses of their choice base on what they have learned.
Furthermore, due to the kind gesture and good work of Eng. Abubakar Muhammed, he gave out ample of vehicles to his friends, family, relatives, known and unknown people within and outside his community in order to make life aesthetics for them and to help them render their activities and their mobility smooth and steady.
With this giant stride of Engineer Abubakar Muhammad S Bello, there is no doubt that the end of hunger, poverty and unemployment has come.
There fore, people should hurry up and grab this golden opportunity given by the Sarkin Shanu’s foundation to say bye to poverty and hunger.
