China’s Becoming Nigeria’s New BFF

During Nigerian President Mohammadu Buhari’s election address earlier this year, he laid out his agenda and described the challenges facing Nigeria. The country is receiving assistance from China in most of the critical areas with the aim of fostering the foundation for a “win-win” relationship. With regards to the agricultural industry, the Nigerian National Special Program for Food Security, funded by the United Nations in 2003, fostered exchange with Chinese agriculture experts. It brought hundreds of Chinese agriculturalists to Nigeria to share their expertise with local communities to develop agricultural strategies and promote self-sustained living. In recent time, Chinese agricultural firms have moved to capitalize on Nigeria’s untapped market potential.
