Nigeria's March for Science focused on adoption of science to achieve food security

As Nigeria joins the rest of the world to mark this year’s March for Science, stakeholders in the agricultural sector have harped on the need to use science to advance agricultural production in Nigeria in order to achieve food security.

Science, which is evidence-based, has been used in most developed countries to advance food production through the improvement of yield per hectare and reduction in use of chemicals and pesticides and addressing the issue of climate change.

This year’s March for Science attracted farmers, scientists and other stakeholders in the agricultural and other relevant sectors, to show solidarity to science and Nigerian scientists in their quest to develop technologies that will address food security.

The March was organized by the OFAB and partners: Click to view more pictures from the March
