  • Nigeria, Africa’s largest economy, is grappling with an increasing grain import bill as the current lack of a state-supported credit facility for farmers, poor basic infrastructure, surge in farm input costs and insecurity, especially in rice-growing regions, hamper efforts to achieve self-sufficiency in wheat, rice, corn, soybeans and other critical agricultural production.

  • Nigeria is one of the most developed countries in Africa. In fact, she has progressed tremendously in the service industry of late. She has also improved immensely in the information and communication (ICT) industry.
