Please describe your vision of a world that works for everyone.
In the current world we are living from hand to mouth due to global warming, the world that I look for its the world of plenty, and we are the people to make the world a batter place by planting trees, planting indigenous crops, most of the diseases we are suffering from its due to lack of commitment and being aware of what is happening the world, but if we can be able to conserve our environment and be responsible we will have a perfect world.
What do you see as the most pressing problems facing the world today?
The most problem facing the world is global warming, we have failed to manage our environment due to our own selfish interest cutting trees all over the world, also our young people do not want to do farming its termed as a work for failures, people go for white collar job, we have neglected the responsibility of food production, that people don’t take it serious, and in the world today there is no sufficient food storage people are starving due to lack of food, no rain because we have done deforestation, our indigenous trees have been chopped down and its very dangerous for us.
How do you feel these problems could best be solved?
The problem can be solved by committing the world that planting trees is a mandatory thing and preservation of our indigenous trees is a key priority to the nation. all schools from lower level to higher institution they should give students, tips on how to do farming, let it be a requirement to every individual to have the skills on food production, agriculture, agribusiness should be more funded to encourage people to do more of food production and processing in the world, a world without food is doomed nothing people can do if they cannot feed their nation.
