Nigeria has the potential to generate $427.3 million from domestic value-addition and earn N1 trillion ($2.98 billion) from agricultural exports of cassava per annum, Executive Director of the Foundation for Partnership Initiatives in the Niger Delta (PIND) Dara Akala has said. The recent cassava export earnings show that the country is falling behind and much work needs to be done to achieve the goal. Nigeria remains the largest producer of cassava in the world, with approximately 59.19 million tonnes as of 2019. However, the country falls behind in exporting the crop.
