Our goal is to achieve domestic food security for Nigerians by ensuring that the smallholder and commercial farmers have access to high-quality seeds, fertilizers, technology and other crop protection products needed to produce targeted yields. Driving priority crops and commodity production, the AFJP will increase agricultural productivity and ensure rapid economic growth.
Job growth along the agriculture value chain is another goal of the Agricultural for Food and Jobs Plan. We aim to create jobs by employing Nigerians in the agri business clusters, out grower schemes and supporting value chain activities. With unemployment rates rising as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, job creation in the agriculture supply chain will prevent disruptions in the economy and ensure a peaceful recovery for the nation.
