What's AFJP?

AFJP is the FG’s response to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 global pandemic on locally grown food supply chain.

According to Nigerian authorities, "this response will ease the impending impact of the global food crisis on Nigeria, protect our most vulnerable citizens, and keep local food supply chains thriving."

Officials added: "We aim to create jobs by employing Nigerians in the agribusiness clusters, out-grower schemes, and supporting value chain activities.

"With unemployment rates rising as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, job creation in the agriculture supply chain will prevent disruptions in the economy and ensure a peaceful recovery for the nation."
