The paper aimed to advocate the
adoption of agripreneurship education as a special form of
entrepreneurship education for the enhancement of the
potential of agriculture sector to ensure food security. It
argued that food security is necessary for supporting the
dream vision of Nigeria to be among the league of 20 largest
world economies by 2020. Accordingly, agripreneurship
education should be compulsory from basic level to tertiary
level of our educational system. In order to support this,
agripreneurship mentoring for young graduates must be
carried out by successful agribusinesses and a tax regime
put in place for agripreneurship education. Further, the
paper showed how such model could translate into increased
economic opportunities and food security for the household
and the nation. Finally, a policy to support access to
international markets for agricultural commodities,
endowment for research in agripreneurship, national merit
award to successful agripreneurs and increased support to
the study of agricultural based courses were
