She wrote: "First time I visited Eastern Nigeria I was struck by these thoughts. There was so much land uncultivated - coming from Kenya where every inch of arable land is cultivated. My village people would weep to see so much fertile land uncultivated. The rainfall is soooo heavy the rain falls like the heavens have opened. It’s really incredible.
