Adams Oluwadamilola Kemi


One of the greatest challenges that face a typical military officer at the edge of retirement is life after retirement.  Retirement is the act of retiring or the state of being retired, i.e. to withdraw oneself from active service.  The main objectives of the study are Identify the challenges of retired military officers; Determine if agricultural production can solve these challenges; Analyse ways in which agricultural production can help in sustainability after retirement from the military; Access the likely constraints to be faced by retired military officers when venturing into agriculture; and Determine the strategies for promoting agricultural production among military officers. Data for this study were collected from primary and secondary sources.  A total number of two hundred (200) questionnaires were administered in this research work, out of which one hundred and ninety two (192) were returned.  The questionnaires were administered using purposive random sampling techniques.  Descriptive statistics, correlation analysis and likert type scale were adopted in the analysis of the data collected. Results from the study revealed that agricultural production will go a long way in tackling these challenges. This study therefore recommends that officers in the Nigeria military should be trained on how to have a better sustainable means after retirement through agricultural production.
