The narrative around Nigeria’s agriculture potential has been strong. In light of the torrid times the country’s economy has faced, the need to move talk to action has also been reinforced, in a bid to diversify the country’s revenue and foreign exchange income.
We add momentum to this narrative. In our recent country note, Investment Options in Nigeria’s Agriculture Value Chain, we provide a demand-supply gap analysis of select agriculture value chains in Nigeria.
These value chains include rice, tomatoes, poultry and fish farming.
Agriculture is no doubt a critical opportunity area for investments in Nigeria. The country’s population is huge and growing, expected to reach almost 400 million in 2050. The country needs a productive agricultural sector to diversify its economy, create jobs and engender food security.
“For Nigeria’s agriculture to reach the productivity level where it can sustain economic diversification, job creation and food security, it will need catalytic investments across the value chain. Much of the focus has been on expanding this investment from primary production to processing, but there are also value opportunities in for example, cold chain storage and transportation in the tomatoes value chain. We try to explore some of these opportunities in the country note,” explained Obinna Igwebuike, Managing Partner of Sawubona Advisory Services.
