Nigeria 2018. Agriculture:
The big push forward

Nigeria may be the biggest economy in Africa…

… but if you dig a little deeper in the numbers you find the real engine of growth.

In the past four decades it has expanded almost four times over and most of that has come from agriculture.

Before the discovery and exploration of petroleum, the Nigerian economy depended on funds generated from agricultural export expansion for the development of other sectors of the economy. More than trade, oil or any other sector, almost a third of the growth in this dynamic country has been from the gifted land and its farmers.
