- A political science professor, Ibrahim Umara, at the University of Maiduguri has shown off his large harvest of onions
- People praised Ibrahim for his humility at exploring farming despite his high academic qualifications
- In the snap, he lay on the heap with a satisfied look and without caring if sand would stain his cloth
With the way prices of food keep shooting through the roof these days, farm produce may just be the new oil, and agriculture could see renewed interest.
In a Facebook post by Adamu Bello on Facebook on Saturday, June 19, he wrote about how his lecturer, Ibrahim Umara, had a big harvest.
He is so humble
He said despite Ibrahim being a famous political science lecturer at the University of Maiduguri, he took farming seriously.
After the professor had harvested his onion, he lay on the heap in the trunk of a pickup vehicle as he posed for a photo.
Adamu suggested that the man's act of humility at showing off his harvest is a lesson in itself. Many people had many things to say as they thronged his comment section.
