The Relationship Between Imperialism And Food Insecurity In Africa With Special Emphasis On Nigeria
AbstractMany African states have recently, hurriedly put together a number of measures aimed at cushioning the effects of the global food crisis. Most of these programs have been implemented in different forms since the era of independence and have had no significant impact on food and agricultural development. In this paper we used the historical materialism approach to critically evaluate Africaâ€™s food crisis genesis. Our thesis, using the Nigerian, experiences is that Africaâ€™s contact with metropolitan capital set the continent on the path to dependent economic and political development. The state structures in Africa emphasize economic programs which respond to Europeâ€™s economic needs to the detriment of internal agricultural capacity building. To redress the situation, we have recommended an end to imperialism and capacity building among African peasants.
