Agriculture was once the leading industry in Nigeria, but decades of mismanagement caused the industry to decline. Today, the nation which once had a promising export crop business must import food in order to support its explosive population. Over the last decade, the Nigerian government has chosen to focus many of its resources on natural gas and oil production, which today accounts for more than 98% of export earnings even though it only accounts for less than 3% of the world's oil supply. In this episode of the Disruptive Voice, senior researcher Efosa Ojomo talks with Folusho Olaniyan, former Managing Director, United Trading Company (UTC) Nigeria Plc and CEO of Contact Consulting Nigeria, about what needs to change in order for Nigeria's agriculture industry to be rebuilt into a sustainable and successful enterprise.
