This program would not only ensure improvement of the level of technical and economic efficiency, It would also harmonize and integrate fiscal, monetary, trade, budgetary and other policies that affects labor, capital, land production systems; input supply, water resources, rural infrastructure; agricultural extension services and research, technology development and transfer; training and manpower development and thus ensure;
- Attainment of self-sufficiency in basic food commodities particularly those that the country spends considerable amount of foreign exchange and for which she has comparative advantage in local production in Nigeria;
- Increase in production and processing of exportable commodities with a view to increasing their foreign exchange earning capacity and further diversifying the country’s export base of the country, and
- Creation of more rural employment opportunities to increase the income of rural dwellers, and reduce poverty in Nigeria.
This innovative ASD framework shall be deployed to develop new socio economic relationships across the three tiers of government level that would be driven by economic linkages rather than boundaries through an integrated natural resources determination/exploration and resource determination program that would be used to initiate data driven infrastructure and value chained production programs across the length and breadth of Nigeria.
These projects would be also used to develop infrastructure in the Power, Transport, Agriculture and Solid Minerals Sub Sectors of the Nigerian Economy and also promote the use of alternative power generation, especially the existing small hydro power potentials and the integration to the existing 12,000 km rail network .
This is the most viable option the current government transformation agenda of economic restructuring and decentralization as Government would not need to spend money on the provision of infrastructure.
