Unlocking Nigeria's Agricultural Exports

Overview

Despite the steady growth in the value of Nigeria's agriculture exports over the last three years (2016 to 2018), the country's agriculture exports to total exports remained below 2%. Consequently, oil revenue continue to account for more than 80% of total value of annual exports. However, the agriculture industry contributed approximately 25% to total GDP in 2018 while the oil sector's share of total economic output was 8.6% over the same period. Since the agriculture sector is the largest contributor to Nigeria's GDP, unlocking the potential of agricultural exports is key.

This publications provides a review of Nigeria's agricultural exports and highlights the opportunities which if effectively harnessed will drive the country's agricultural development and expand agricultural export.
