Suara.com – Minister of Agriculture (Mentan) Syahrul Yasin Limpo appointed Lesti Kejora to be the Millennial Farmer Ambassador. The Ministry of Agriculture (Kementan) has its own reasons for choosing Lesti as the ambassador.
Ministry of Agriculture Public Relations Officer, Agung, revealed that Lesti could be an inspiration for young people in terms of farming. Moreover, the dangdut singer often shows his family’s activities in the agricultural sector.
