Rethinking food production in West Africa: The prehistorical perspective

  • S.I. Okoroafor


Food sufficiency in a society can guarantee development in it. In  West Africa today, there is food shortage reality to malnutrition, hunger and starvation. This has ignited negative trends such as corrupt practices, lack of respect for societal values and low  esteem of the people among other vices. The need for food is sin qua non to all human requirements yet it is not receiving  appropriate attention by peoples and governments of the region. It would appear that the region lacks the experience but history here approached through prehistorical analytical tools does not ascend to this. The  environment is capable of producing the food if only the peoples can strive. And they would be happier if they do.
