World Farmers extol Madiba, say ‘He is one of us’

"Be free Madiba, the last of the last, but the first to defend his people. A just man, a visionary, a good man, simple, one of us” these are words of exaltation from the World Farmers Organisation (WFO) reports NaijaAgroNet.

According to WFO, this is the way to say goodbye to Nelson Mandela, who they said was a symbol of the struggle against apartheid and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, expressed by the World Farmers' Organisation (WFO -OMA).

Marco Marzano, Executive Director of WFO told NaijaAgroNet that Mandela was always ready to fight for equal rights, “so world’s farmers recognize in him an example of humility, justice and hope for everyone.”

Also, Marzano noted that Mandela was a symbol not only for African farmers, but for those of every country, who are committed to produce the food that feeds the world's population, mostly to ensure a future for the planet and for future generations through a conscientious use of natural resources.

As said by WFO, despite many challenges such as the marginalization in the agricultural sector, lack of access to credit, the limited recognition of the role in the mitigation of climate change, exclusion from decision-making, farmers continue to struggle daily to assert their rights.

WFO pointed out to NaijaAgroNet that the legacy left by Madiba, an icon of determination and peace, “is an example to be followed by farmers around the world.”
