dc.description.abstractFrom the early 197Os, the problems of food shortage reached an alarming state, necessitating more serious attention from both governments and individuals. In the case of the former, these responses have been numerous and varied, ranging from short- to long-term measures, from importing food to make up for the shortfall, to laying the necessary infrastructure for higher output in agriculture. Prominent and most important among the imported foodstuffs have been cereals, especially rice. This paper is therefore an attempt to assess the success or failure of the measures taken by the various Nigerian governments in response to this crisis.en_US
