This paper is an assessment of breaking new frontiers in Nigeria commercial agricultural sector and the exigency for active involvement of local governments. It was concluded that unlocking Nigeria’s full agricultural potential requires that Nigeria solve the underlying challenges in its agricultural system, which includes; policy framework, finance and risk management, agricultural technology, political commitment amongst others. The paper recommended that the Local Government Service Commission should be strengthened and accorded constitutional recognition, and given the commission’s laudable objectives, such strengthening would support the human resource and staffing development of local governments in Nigeria, furthermore, Local government administrators in Nigeria should be encouraged to implement the agricultural policies of the government at the grassroots.
