As human beings, we are constantly seeking for a better life, and to many of us, a better life can mean a lot of things. But as a people, we often overlook the first job man ever did (if we go according to the bible) which is agriculture. Do you know that agriculture gave birth to different types of jobs?
Agriculture is ensuring that edible food is being produced and if man didn’t cultivate the land to produce food, people will starve and die of hunger. Even Abraham Maslow in his theory of motivation listed food as one of the important motivator. Let’s be honest, everyone needs food to start the day and if not at the start of the day, at some point during the day, man must eat.
With a population of over 180 million and an area covering 923,768 km2, Nigeria offers an investment opportunity to anyone who is seeking to invest in the agricultural sector. Aside from local distribution, agricultural produce can be exported to other countries. The GDP from Agriculture in Nigeria increased to 3745091.59 NGN million in the second quarter of 2017 and is expected to reach 5270000.00 NGN million by the end of the 3rd quarter.
The government is currently putting policies in place that will motivate investors to come into this sector. This is the time to come into the agricultural sector as not only will you be making money but will also be providing food to Nigerians.
