Appraising the Effect of Boko Haram Insurgency on the Agricultural Sector of Nigerian Business Environment
The study is an appraisal of Boko Haram’s insurgency on the agricultural sector of the Nigerian business environment. A time series analysis research method was adopted, while descriptive statistics and t-test were used to analyse the secondary data before and during the insurgency. The result of the findings showed that agricultural valued added to the GDP was high before Boko Haram disruption and has reduced during the period of insurgency. Based on the findings, the study recommends that Government should take legal and justifiable action to ensure that the ills caused by Boko Haram to the agricultural sector are arrested and farmers encouraged with better incentives to go back to farm.
