With a population over 170 billion, which is also growing every day The Nigerian Agribusiness Sector has become booming. Predictably to grow larger in upcoming years.
There are many booming subsections to Agribusiness.
Growing Population and expanding urbanization has led to fast growth in demand for livestock products, including poultry. It happens to be the fastest growing segment in the Agricultural Industry in Nigeria. According to ThisDay Newspaper, Nigeria has a poultry industry worth over N 1.2tn as of 2017.
Keeping in mind the market size, Nigeria’s Egg Production is the largest in Africa. Chicken importation was banned by Nigeria in 2003, which spurred growth in domestic poultry production.

This segment of Farming has been a source of livelihood for millions of Nigerians. With increase in varied use of Cassava Products in Nigeria, Cassava farming is getting more and more lustrous and profitable day to day.
Ninety Percent of Nigerian Homes consume Cassava Products regularly.
In all of Western Africa, Nigeria is the largest producer of rice. In all over Africa it is the third largest producer, after Egypt and Madagascar producing about 3.6 million metric tons, on an average annually.
But, apparently, Nigeria happens to fall short of meeting its local demands which creates a 5.5 billion tons consumer base. Considering these facts, rice farming is a lucrative business to start.
Another business idea, cheaper than the rest, in terms of capital required is snail farming. Internet facts say that the snail business has extensive opportunities but is neglected. It also is a good farming idea to earn money in a short period of time.
But before jumping into this, it is important to do thorough research regarding snail farming business. Since by some generalized facts snails happen to be expensive to eat and are very dormant during the dry season, thus become scarce.
A surging swell has taken over the Agribusiness Culture in Africa. There are many more lucrative options to look into in the Farming segment, such as catfish farming, maize farming, pig farming, and honey bee farming. The above mentioned are the most economic and easy to start. You can literally start in your backyard!

Thus as an extensive requirement for an Educator, not only creates a demand but lack of education is also a societal problem that needs to be resolved. The typical wants at day cares, nursery school, primary and secondary schools, universities. Pick an education niche that interests you and start preparing!
