Most Hydro plants locations idle. 34 Industrial, metallic and rare metals untapped. Over half of Nigeria 924 000km of land mass is arable and richly endowed with mineral and natural resources.(less than 94,000 out of the 2.9 million hectares of arable land is irrigated) Nigeria has the capacity to utilize the Gas presently been flared into power Generation. Nigeria’s capacity to produce steel is still undeveloped. Most Nigerian coal/lignite deposits are untapped. Use of sub soil as veritable building materials is largely unexplored (all public sector brick industries are dysfunctional) . Nigeria’s capacity to produce cement is on the decline despite large deposits of limestone.
The Nigerian Agricultural commodities potential is not aligned to the development of the untapped solid minerals sector. Most water resources are only used for irrigational and artisanal agricultural activities. High yield commodities like cotton, cocoa, palm oil, sesame seeds etc are at best sold as raw materials with little or no value added. Lack of a production program that can ensure a minimum of 5 million metric tones of commodities to be transported through the Rail and Inland water transport system. Lack of a clear cut private sector led commodities development (Agricultural and solid minerals) program. Low level private sector led projects on the development of alternative power generation programs that would be linked to an integrated commodities and housing development program. Despite Nigeria’s effort in the revitalization of its energy sector, National power output is still below the average that can contribute to the energy needs of the productive sector. The Rail and inland water system is still largely dysfunctional, the consequences is the absence of cheap transportation models for goods and services.
Low capacity utilization of its Natural resources. Over reliance of foreign technology and import substitution. Absence of a functional National program on the development of local technology purely out of local ingredients. Low level of the integration of the core sectors to a single goal program. Free Access of goods and services into the Nigerian market.
Despite its position as the 5th world largest oil producer, and claims of deposits of Barite and Bentonite Nigeria’s still imports all the drilling fluids it consumes in the oil sector. Despite its alternative sources of Energy (Solar, Bio-Diesel, Coal) Nigeria still generates less than 3 000mw of electricity. Despite the laudable efforts at improving agriculture, the Nigerian food security program is still largely anchored on import substitution. Despite the abundance of phosphate Nigeria has no functional Fertilizer production or blending plant. Despite the abundance of local building, materials, Nigeria is still unable to develop a truly mass housing that is affordable and cheap. The Human Development Index (HDI) of UNIDO for 2007/2008 puts Nigeria at 0.470% which places the country in the158th out of 177 countries.This report means that Nigeria has not even attained the average for Sub-Sahara Africa and if the UNIDOreport is to be believed then there is an obvious challenge to attaining the industrial goals of the Vision20-20-20 goal.This low output can be attributed by the lack of a definitive and thought through program for theintegration and alignment of the productive sub-sectors into a production model that would be driven bythe private sector.
A World Bank Report ranked Nigeria 3rd in the list of countries with populations of 80-90 million citizens who live on less than one dollar (USD) per day. India and China which were the 1st and 2nd on the list respectively are vigorously expanding their various economies using their various natural endowments. China is easily becoming the biggest investor in the Nigerian and indeed global economy bringing in tow their local fabricated machinery, equipment and technical know how. India is presently controlling the global steel market and until recently had the exclusive ownership of the Nigerian Iron ore deposit and all the Multi billion dollar Steel plants. The simple reason for the monumental successes of China and India is that both countries have developed a value chain model of their resources and secures raw materials from countries like Nigeria which in turn is used to develop infrastructure in such countries at exorbitant costs
The primary challenge of the Nigerian Solid Minerals Sector is the absence of back end programs like mineral exploration and exploitation can be seen in its operational structures like the National Geological Survey Agency (NGSA) the Mining Cadastre Office (MCO) the Mines Inspectorate Department (MID) and the defunct Nigerian Mining Corporation (NMC). The failures or inability of these agencies or departments to create a synergy for their various functions created a lacuna in the mineral and metals sector that led to the collapse of its key industries like the Makeri smelter in Jos, the Kaolin processing plant in Katsina, Jakura marble in Kogi and the numerous other minerals, metals and bricks factories that were established all over the country
The threshold of industrialization is measured in terms of steel consumption on a global average of 130 kilograms (per capita). Our Nation’s steel consumption average with its population of one hundred and forty million persons is 10 kilograms (per capita) which translates to approximately 1.5 million tons per annum To be rated among the 20 industrialized nations, Nigeria must improve its steel consumption from its present 1.5 million tons per annum to 18 million tons per annum This could only be attainable if our local production capacity is improved through the integration of the Minerals, Metals and Steel into a definitive production, consumption and infrastructure development program.
The ASCL is based on the Blast Furnace/Basic Oxygen Furnace process which was commenced in 1979. The plant sits on an area of about 800 hectares of land comprising of the project, and 3,904 housing units. It is believed that the FGN has expended over $10 million USD in the establishment of the plant and its requisite infrastructure. The primary challenge of the plant is that most of the completed steel plants and units are in idle state.

Lack of understanding of the diversified industrial portfolio of ASCLExplanatory notes: Ajaokuta project is actually the most diversified industrial development portfolio in the entire federal economic development program and is equipped with over 37 (thirty seven) industrial manufacturing and utilities sector
Inappropriate back-end programs for raw materialsdue to: Lack of defined exploration and project development programs (risk, exploration and venture funds) occasioned by low understanding of the synergy between the (exploration and exploitation of key minerals:-Dolomite, Manganese, Lime stone and other potentials of Iron ore) in the value chain (minerals, metals and steel development) Explanatory notes: even in event of government commissioning all the lines in Niomco to produce foundry grade iron, the plant would still require equal if not larger amounts of other mineral products like limestone, Coal, Manganese, Dolomite to commence local production.
1. The agro-allied sector was a key contributor to the pre and post colonial administrations in Nigeria, accounting for 40 percent of GDP and providing 60 percent of informal employment.2. The sector is still a major source of informal employment growth and between 2001-2007 accounted for 51 percent of jobs in Nigeria.3. Due to the nature of the post colonial agriculture development models and programs, Nigeria has lost a lot of grounds in the production and exports of key crops such as cocoa, groundnuts, ground nut oil and palm oil.4. Hitherto, In the 1960s, Nigeria had over 60% of global palm oil exports, 30% of global ground nut exports, 20- 30% of global ground nut oil exports, and 15 % of global cocoa exports and by the 2000s, Nigeria global share of exports of each of these crops was 5% or less.5. The loss of production capability has turned Nigeria into a net importer of agricultural produce, with imports of some major food products like wheat (NGN 635.5 billion – USD 4.1bn), fish (NGN 96.9 billion – USD 625 million), rice (NGN 356.5 billion – USD 2.3 billion) and sugar (NGN 217 billion – USD 1.4 billion) totalling NGN 98.08 trillion (USD 632.8 billion) of food import bill for the period 2007 t0 2010.6. Consequently Nigeria faces a large and growing global agricultural market – Rising commodity prices, growing demand for food, and opportunities in bio-fuel all present significant opportunities for Nigeria. For example, global cereal demand will grow by between 31% and 150% by 2050 depending on the region, and global commodity prices are in their second major spike in three years. Agriculture can become the main driver for more equitable income growth, compared to oil and gas sector.7. In spite of these, Nigeria’s agriculture sector has enormous potential – with an opportunity to grow output by 160%, from NGN 15.345 trillion (USD 99 billion) today to NGN 39.68 trillion (USD 256 billion) by 20308. This growth potential can be driven by increasing the acreage by 14 m ha of new agricultural land, which is approximately 38% of Nigeria’s unused arable land of 36.9m ha; and this will in turn shift 20% of production to higher value crops’. 16
Power (Electricity) Without adequate power supply, processing plants cannot absorb the outputBusiness cannot thrive without Thus,leading at the productionregular and affordable power level.supply.Current power generation in theNigeria is 3,800megawatts(mw)most of which is not tied to anyagriculture projects as firstcharge 18
Nigerian roads have to be improved by government to enable smooth haulage of agricultural products across the country.Out of a 195,000km road This will reduce lossesnetwork of Federal, State andlocal road of which only just and lower transportationabout 50,000km are paved costsdisallowing proper coverage ofthe nation’s over 900,000km2land mass 19
For business to perform its role in Nigeria, a good quality rail system must be put in place to complement the network of roads in transporting goods and services .Locomotive availability of 6 per cent inNigeria is dismal in comparison with 1Ratio of the number of locomotive-hours75 per cent for Africa. of available locomotives during the periodThe railways contribute only 1per cent to the product of the number ofto national transportation,” locomotives in the fleet times the number of hours in the period. 20
Nigeria is currently investing not more than N82.5 billion into the sector, which is less than a quarter of the expected investment in water annually from the tree tiers of government.Out of 2.9 million hectares This must be stepped-up toof arable land, only about boost irrigated agriculture in974,900 hectares is Nigeria which has beencurrently irrigated in underutilized over the years.Nigeria 21
The Issues and Challenges of the Arid Zones of Nigeria
General Attributes of Arid Zones Poverty Food Insecurity Economic Disruption Migration (urban – rural, rural-rural, nonfertile – fertile). Generates Resource use conflict. Destruction of habitat and loss of biodiversity unemployment
Adjoins the Sahara desert Receives maximum influence of Sahara desert in Nigeria in form of desertification and desert encroachment. Produces about 90% of livestock in Nigeria hence cause 80% of desertification. Responsible for 70% of Nigeria grain production.
Sand dune Soil infertility Fuel wood Extraction Bush Burning Overgrazing Cultivation of marginal land
875 million trees . 1.00mha of Vertiver grass About 37000 ha of Jatropha About 37000 ha of Cactus Opuntus About 37000 ha of Neem About 37000 ha of desert food About 40 million livestock About 37000 ha of Eucalyptus trees.
Employment goes up by 2.8 – 3.1 in the first 5 – 8 years A massive carbon sink will be created in formerly arid region. Massive tons of carbon dioxide will be sequestrated from these trees and this will obviously reduce climate change. The standard in this region will be raised above any other in Nigeria.
Oil was discovered in the Niger Delta in Oloibiri (Bayelsa state) in 1956. Production and export of 5000 BOPD commenced in Olobiri and Afam oil fields in 1958. Nigeria oil reserves in the Niger Delta is about 60billion barrels out of which 27billion barrels(45%) has been exploited over a 50year period, the unexploited reserves33billion barrels (65%)is expected to last for only another 38 years. The Niger Delta region hosts about 183tcf of gas,13tcf (6%) has been produced mostly as associated gas (AG) 83% of the figure has been lost to gas flaring. Total rent over this 50 year period under review amounts to between$300- $400billion
Armed agitation in the Niger Delta started in 1997 with the seizure of six Shell flow stations and 127 staff in Warri. The same year the Chikoko movement and the Federated Niger Delta Ijaw Communities (FENDIC) were formed. A year later the kaiama declaration was proclaimed with the formation of the Ijaw Youth Council (IYC). Over this period several armed groups, The Niger Delta People Volunteer Force (NDPVF) The Movement for Emancipation of Niger Delta (MEND) The Martyrs Brigade (MB) The Coalition of Militant Action (COMA) The Niger Delta Peoples Salvation Front (NDPSF) emerged. The absence of a (comprehensive think through program) and the actions and activities of these militants has led to colossal losses to the Nation and caused more environmental ,social and health challenges to the Niger Delta community.
The economy the Niger Delta region is predicated on growth without prerequisite development. This is because its economy is driven by highly capital activities such as oil and gas which is highly specialized and largely machinery and technology dependent. This trend can be reversed if the economic development blueprint of the region is restructured on and predicated on functional Education (live skills), Solid minerals, Agriculture, Transport, Housing, Power and Water resources programs and projects. Poverty remains a major problem in the Niger Delta and consequently the logic of recurrent agitations, violence and militia movements derives from the lingering deprivation of people in the region. It our view that poverty alleviation programs can be sustainable if it is tied to the regions natural and human resources through an integrated and bottom up macro-economic management and rooted on a home ownership structure.
Green House Emissions Gas flaring and venting produces more greenhouse-gas emissions than any other single source in sub Saharan Africa, and many who live in Niger Delta oil-producing communities complain of chronic health and environmental problems associated with the gas flares. The giant gas flares from facilities operated by IOCs belch out noxious fumes that loom over homes, farms and shops, while many villagers may not be familiar with the concept of climate change, they complain that the air around them is unusually hot and foul-smelling because of the gas flares In the areas close to the gas flares, medical staff report treating patients with all sorts of illnesses that they believe are related to the flames: bronchial, chest, rheumatic and eye problems, among others.

The primary goal of the PSISF project model is to reestablish Nigeria as a: production based economy. improve human capital development. Create mass employment opportunities. Develop models for skill acquisition and development of local technology. Accelerate the growth of agriculture and solid mineral sub-sectors Initiate and pursue alternative sources of sustainable energy to power productivity Provide housing through the use of cheap materials for building mass housing, schools, hospitals and industries Provide goods and services that would make the rail system, inland water ways and dry ports functional and self sustaining. Replace the existing pattern of development which is public sector driven with a pattern that is private sector driven and production based. Establish industrial parks in locations that encourage National integration through the pulling of resources and human capital from the states that border the industrial parks
Stimulation of local production Establishment of private sector led economy Entrenching probity and accountability in public projects Establishment of a sustainable sub-structure Strengthen the local banking sector capacity to fund infrastructure projects Local capacity building Mass job creation Sustainable development of infrastructure Conservation of foreign exchange Initiation of a private sector led economy Domestication of technology
