Abstract

Undoubtedly, food is life; hence, food becomes an instrument of national power It is within that imperatival need for food that this paper discusses the issue of food security and its economic ramifications in a democratic Nigeria. The paper which starts with a comprehensive review of Nigeria's agricultural policy observed that much still needs to be done if the crisis in the sector will not escalate more so, in a supposedly democratic dispensation which expectedly should promote the value of welfarisrn. The findings of this study show that Nigeria needs to come up with a suitable economic food policy which for now it lacks. What public policy makers pursue is merely an agricultural policy that still suffers enormously from a wide gap between intent and actual practices.
