FOOD SECURITY IN NIGERIA: AN OVERVIEW
No doubt, food is life; hence, food has become an instrument of national power. It iswithin that imperatival need for food that this paper takes a cursory look at the issue inall its ramifications. The paper with a comprehensive review of Nigeria’s agriculturalpolicy noted that much still needs to be done if the crisis in the sector will not escalatemore so, in a supposedly democratic dispensation which expectedly should promote thevalue of welfarism. The paper infers that Nigeria needs to come up with food policywhich for now it lacks. What public policy makers pursue is merely an agricultural policythat still suffers enormously from a wide gap between intent and actual practices.
