EU projects Nigeria as Africa’s agric powerhouse in 2026

An official of European Union, John Clarke, has projected Nigeria to be an agricultural powerhouse in 10 years time with the entrepreneurial spirit of the people and its abundant land. Clarke, who is the Director, International and Bilateral Relations of the EU, made the projection at the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry International Investment Conference in Lagos. The conference was part of the activities marking the 30th Lagos International Trade Fair organised by the chamber slated for November 4 to 13. Clarke said: “Positive policies geared toward attracting investment into the agricultural sector will make the projection a reality.” He said that local and foreign investments in the sector would create a stable alternative to the pattern of economic migration. He said: “Sadly, we see so many young people leaving the country; with the investment, Nigeria can produce foods for its own budding population, earn export through regional and global trade. “The EU is a fervent believer in the future of Nigeria. You are a great country with huge potential, and we will continue to contribute to your future economic growth.”
