The Cocoa Worker

Cocoa is the leading agricultural export of Nigeria, currently the world's fourth largest producer of Cocoa, after Ivory Coast, Indonesia and Ghana.

The crop was a major foreign exchange earner for Nigeria in the 1950s and 1960s and in 1970 the country was the second largest producer in the world but following investments in the oil sector in the 1970s and 1980s, Nigeria's share of world output declined.

This monument of a bereted cocoa worker stands in Akure, Southern Nigeria.
