It is imperative that Nigeria government first and foremost eradicate corruption, and encourage local production of goods and services especially agricultural products for which we have comparative advantage to produce in terms of weather, soil and vegetation and de-emphasize high expenditure on foreign consumption of things we can locally produce. Also small and medium scale farmers should be encouraged through the provision of improved inputs, subsidy and new production innovations. Non- farm activities should also be encouraged among the rural farmers in rural Africa to suplement their farm income and eradicate poverty.
