Squealing to the discovery of petroleum, Nigeria has rapidly grown into a major food importing nation as the government has become neglectful of the agricultural sector since petroleum is considered a more viable resource for economic development. This situation quickly polarized the nation into high and low income groups. Unfortunately, while only small fraction of the population benefited from the oil wealth, the population suffered the misfortune of food insecurity as they can hardly afford the rising prices of imported foods. However, this paper highlights the important role the Buhari’s regime have played in revamping the agricultural sector in overturning the food insecurity problems that befell Nigeria and the coping strategies.
One of the conclusion/recommendation is for policy regularity and policy implementation agencies to curb the importation of various contraband items. It is recommended that the government of Nigeria should as a matter of urgency mechanize the Agricultural sector for the purpose of bountiful cultivation and industrial development that will exploit agricultural produce to finished product will lead to a reduction of unemployment.
