Nigerians at the grassroots are mostly consulted only during electoral periods and are neglected when policy issues which concerns them are raised. For this reason, NANTS puts in the effort to sensitize citizens at the grass root levels on decisions taken by the federal government particularly on issues around agriculture and trade.

NANTS in partnership with Oxfam sensitized small scale farmers in Benue and Plateau states on the 2016 proposed agricultural budget. The farmers were enlightened on how best to advocate for more investments in agriculture through the national budget.
