He hammered on the different job opportunities available in agricultural enterprise as he as a  "sole business person in the agricultural business" had "discovered the great job opportunities in agriculture"

This news agency learnt that Mr. Obasanjo owns one of the largest farms in Nigeria, located in Sango-Ota area of Ogun state with varieties of poultry, livestock and food products.
