Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Sabo Nanono said in a statement reaching Xinhua in Abuja that coconut has proven to be a significant non-oil export foreign exchange earner for Nigeria.
Coconut, Nanono said, currently accounts for 10 percent of Nigeria's agricultural exports, and by the end of this year, it is expected to generate more than 250 million dollars.
Nigeria’s milk production accounts for only 13% of West African production and 0.01% of global dairy output. The gap between supply and demand for dairy products is widening as a result of increase in population and urbanization. 4/4 pic.twitter.com/oMmcGKPkKl
