Fulani Herdsmen Challenge

According to social media discussions, they are considered the greatest menace in Nigeria after the terrorist group known as Boko Haram. The media reports incidents of brutal murders all along their path as they drive their livestock Southward. The social media see them as a tribal and religious menace. However the government appear unwilling to do anything to allay the fears of the ordinary citizen ; and the foreign media brushes it all off as skirmishes over land.

Rural Entrepreneurship Development

Though the answer to the question how to develop entrepreneurship lies in the solutions of the problems faced in this regard, yet the following measures are suggested for developing entrepreneurship in the rural areas in the country:

Low Technology Irrigation Ideas

Irrigating a farm can double the amount of food it produces. But even with that potential, 80 percent of farmland worldwide is not irrigated, says the UN Food and Agriculture Organization. Part of the problem may be the high cost of irrigation equipment. Also, the prospect of wasteful irrigation techniques raises the specter of environmental damage including water shortages, erosion and soil salinization. Small-scale watering systems can circumvent those issues: Low-cost, low-tech and efficient irrigation is possible. These are ten technologies that work.

The Grassroots Challenge

Over 80% of Nigerians live in the rural areas. Ironically the rural areas remain most deficient of amenities such as good roads, good educations, good water supply, good health care system etc. This instigates persistent rural-urban drift which consequently generates a myriad of socio-economy problems for both rural and urban centers.

One way of meeting future food needs could be hydroponics – growing plants without soil, instead using a nutrient-rich solution to deliver water and minerals to their roots. It’s already being used to increase farming outputs and grow plants in habitats that wouldn’t normally sustain them.

Central Bank of Nigeria Agricultural Grants

To fast-track the development of the agricultural sector, and to encourage farmers and investors to embrace agriculture, the federal government of Nigeria has set up different schemes and programs to provide funds regarding loans and grants to large and small-scale farmers. farmers. These credit facilities are made available by the federal government to the public and cover a range of agricultural practices including crop cultivation and livestock rearing.
