Household livelihood across Africa 50 years after independence have recorded lean improvements
especially in terms of access to essential production inputs. Household rate of land access, means of
access, Household rate of land access, means of access, welfare and investment capacities, land cost and the
linkage between access to land and the above measured parameters were investigated using a set of
questionnaires administered to urban and rural settlements. Descriptive results showed that poverty incidence
was high (60%) especially in rural areas is distant from expectations of the MDGs. Lands were obtained majorly
through land purchase indicative of growing land commercialization whose cost (per ha.) ranged from N500,000
to N1m. Access to land (in rural, urban settlements) had low positive correlations with age in both settlements
(0.181, 0.163), with education (0.183, 0.25) and welfare capacity (0.25, 0.82). Similarly, regression line showed
negative slopes, low but positive coefficients (R2) with welfare poverty (R2=0.041) and investment poverty
(R2=0.017) indicating limiting influence of different poverty forms to livelihood and household productivity.
Periodic review of land administration, unified land policy thrust along the lines of reviving interest especially
among youths in agriculture through incentives (tuition-free agricultural disciplines), implementation
synergy, capacity building and granting of loans as financial safety net are key achievable policy
