    Nigerias Agricultural Transformation Agenda (ATA) Turning Nigeria into a Global Powerhouse in Agriculture

    1

    Nigeria can no longer continue to be a sleeping giant. We have to wake up. And if we wake up, we must begin to do things differently.

    Grow Food Assure national food security by adding an additional 20 Million metric tons of food to the domestic food supply by 2015 Create Jobs Over 3.5 Million jobs by 2015 Create Wealth

    His Excellency, President Goodluck E. Jonathan GCFR, President, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed forces of the

    Nigerias imports Nigerias food imports are growing at an

    unsustainable rate of 11% per annum

    Relying on the import of expensive food on global markets fuels domestic inflation

    Excessive imports putting high pressure on the Naira and hurting the economy

    Nigeria is importing what it can produce in abundance

    Import dependency is hurting Nigerian farmers, displacing local production and creating rising unemployment

  • Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, Federal Republic of Nigeria

    Our Vision is to Make Nigeria an Agriculturally Industrialized Economy A government-enabled, private sector-driven approach

    4

    Treating agriculture as a development project

    Funding isolated projects that do not grow the sector in a clear and measurable way

    Allowing big government to crowd-out the private sector

    What we have stopped doing;

    Treating agriculture as a BUSINESS

    Integrating food production, storage, food processing and industrial manufacturing by value chains (Farm-to-Fork)

    Focusing on value chains where Nigeria has comparative advantage

    Adopting Import-Substitution measures to drive sector growth

    Investment-driven strategic partnerships with the private sector

    Investment drives to unlock potential of our States in agriculture (joint init iatives with State Governments)

    New incentives for private sector (zero % duty on all agricultural machinery and equipment

    What we have started doing;

    Achievements So Far Doreo Aggressive New Policies are Driving the Transformation Agenda

  • Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, Federal Republic of Nigeria

    Growth Enhancement Support (GES) Scheme Launched in 2012 The Government Ended 4 Decades of Corruption in the Seed and Fertilizer Sectors Within 90 Days

    Ended direct procurement and distribution of seed and fertilizers by the government

    Private sector seed and fertilizer companies now sell directly to farmers

    Cellphone-based system developed to send subsidies via electronic vouchers (e-wallets) directly to farmers via their cellphones

    Nigeria is 1st country in Africa to develop the E-wallet for input delivery to farmers

    Reached 1.5 million farmers (7.5 million people impacted) within the first one year

    First ever database of farmers developed 4.2 million farmers registered in 2012 10 million farmers registered in 2013

    DIGNITY RETURNS TO NIGERIAN FARMERS Cellphones Used to End Corruption and Save Government Funds

    8

    N15 billion ($100 million) of fertilizers sold directly to farmers via e-wallet system

    N1.5 billion ($10 million) of seeds sold directly to farmers via e-wallet system

    Commercial banks lent N3.7 billion to seed companies and agro-dealers

    0% rate of default on GES Loans Federal Government, states and

    farmers did cost-sharing

    GES system saved the Federal Government N25 billion ($156 million) in 2012

    ATAs Strategy Seeks to Strengthen 10 Priority Value Chains Across the Nation

    9

    North East: Cotton Onion, Tomato, Sorghum

    North West: Cotton Onion, Tomato, Sorghum

    North Central: Maize & Soybean

    South West: Oil Palm & Cocoa

    South East: Oil Palm & Cocoa

    South South: Oil Palm & Cocoa

    National: Rice, Cassava, Livestock and Fisheries are a priority across the Nation

  • 10

    Achievement Highlights Developing Cassava value chains for new value-add products (high quality cassava flour, cassava chips, ethanol, starch, sweeteners)

    Expanding production of high quality cassava flour to substitute imported wheat in the baking industry

    Cassava bread development fund established Secured financing of over $200 million for 18 private sector-owned large scale cassava flour processing plants with 1.3 million MT capacity Secured 3.2 million MT contract orders from China for export of dried cassava chips for Ethanol production

    Government provided 30 million bundles of cassava cuttings free of charge to farmers around the country:

    - Released 3 pro-vitamin cassava varieties

    Cassava Value Chain

    10 Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, Federal Republic of Nigeria

  • 11

    Mr. President launched 40% High Quality Cassava Flour (HQCF) Bread by IITA on 30 November, 2011 and challenged the private sector to commercialize

    11 Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, Federal Republic of Nigeria

  • Within Three Months, Cassava Bread with 20% Cassava Flour and 80% Wheat Became Commercially Available Cassava Bread is 60% of the cost of Wheat Bread and has a higher nutritional value

    12

    12 Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, Federal Republic of Nigeria

  • Export Opportunities Exist For Dried Cassava Chips As the Worlds Leading Cassava Producer, Nigeria is Well Positioned to Benefit From This Export Market

    The global market for cassava chips is estimated at US$1.5 to US$2 billion

    China is the worlds largest buyer of cassava chips, for Ethanol

    Chinas demand is sourced mainly from Southeast Asia: Thailand (54%), Vietnam (38%) and Indonesia (4%)

    Nigeria supplies less than 5% of volumes

    Nigeria has potential to become major global player within two years (Nigerian dried chips preferred to South East Asias due to higher quality level)

    13

    Nigerian Dried Chips

    The Government Has Secured 3.2 million MT Of Contract Orders For Nigerian Dried Cassava Chips From Chinese Importers

    13 Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, Federal Republic of Nigeria

  • Based on Existing Contracts, Nigeria Can Earn Between $802 Million and $1.37 Billion From Dried Chips Exports to China and Europe
