Climate Change, Leadership Challenges and Food Security in Nigeria: A Historical Reflection

AKUBOR Emmanuel Osewe


Climate change is a normal part of the Earth’s natural variability, which is related to interactions among the atmosphere, ocean, and land, as well as changes in the amount of solar radiation reaching the earth. This has been on for decades, but the rapidity at which it is occurring is what is alarming. This has in various ways affected agriculture and other related economic activities worldwide. In the case of Nigeria, the situation is alarming because of the neglect of the leadership to the early warning signs due to high level corruption and political rascality. The result is that while other countries have been able to experience the minimal effect through investment and control, Nigeria has been caught on aware, thus threatening not only food security, but human existence as well.  This paper (from a historians point of view) thus seeks to examine the relationship between Climate change, leadership challenges and food security in Nigeria as well as the way forward.

Keywords: Climate Change, Global warming, Leadership Challenges, Food Security.
