THE CHALLENGES OF FOOD SECURITY IN NIGERIA
Squealing to the discovery of petroleum, Nigeria has rapidly grown into a major food importing nation as the government has become neglectful of the agricultural sector since petroleum is considered a more viable resource for economic development. This situation quickly polarized the nation into high and low income groups. Unfortunately, while only small fraction of the population benefited from the oil wealth, the population suffered the misfortune of food insecurity as they can hardly afford the rising prices of imported foods. However, though at a subsistence level, a sizable ratio of the population in Nigerian is still employed in the Agricultural sector. This paper highlights the important role of agricultural revamping in overturning the food insecurity problems that befell Nigeria and the coping strategies.
