    The ongoing political situation in Zimbabwe has forced white farmers to leave the country and take advantage of the opportunities available in Nigeria.

    The Nigerian government has asked Zimbabwe's farmers to help boost commercial farming in Nigeria.

    Zimbabweans are teaching their skills to the local community, because, one farmer argued, he would rather earn foreign currency in Nigeria than starve back home.
