The Ondo government says it has concluded plans to use agriculture to discourage youths in the state from engaging in money rituals.

Akin Olotu, Senior Special Assistant to Governor Rotimi Akeredolu on agriculture and agribusiness, disclosed this on Thursday in Akure when the executives of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Ondo council, paid him a courtesy visit.

Olotu, who noted that opportunities abound in agriculture, revealed that some youths in the state had started earning dollars through the exportation of their farm produce.

He, therefore, charged the youths to shun money rituals and other criminal means of making money, and embrace agriculture.

Olotu reiterated that the government would give the necessary support to those who desire to venture into farming.

The governor’s aide said he had met with the leadership of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) in the state on the need to discourage youths from the scourge of money ritual killings, and urged the media to assist the government in the area of advocacy.

“I have met with PFN leadership in the state. I want us to pay attention to ritual killings in the state. We may not know the gravity of what is going on now until the next five years,” he said.
