Topic: ‘Food Security and the Role of Insurance in the Sustainability of Agro-Allied Business’.
As the country migrates from an oil dependent economy to non-oil exports, the emphasis is on agriculture and other opportunities. In a land blessed with so much food, Nigeria is still unable to feed herself, talk less of being able to export. Why are we still importing foods that we can easily produce in our country, in our backyards? What happened to our once celebrated status as a major groundnut, cocoa, hides and skin and rubber exporter in Sub-Saharan Africa? How do we become self-sufficient in food production? Why is Nigeria not the Food Basket of Africa?
The June 2016 breakfast meeting will discuss these and more and offer solutions.
