ASSOCIATION OF POULTRY FARMERS IN NIGERIA COMMENDS FG FOR FORESTALLING FOOD CRISIS

Poultry Farmers in the
country say recent Importation of two-hundred-and-sixty-
two metric tons of Maize has saved Nigeria from food
crisis.

 

President of the Poultry Farmers Association of Nigeria,
PAN, Mr., Ibrahim Ezekiel Mam who stated this during a
program in Abuja said the import waiver was a follow-up to
President Muhammadu Buhari's intervention to reduce the
impact of Covid-19 pandemic on the sub Sector.

He noted that it was part of measures by the Federal
government to bridge the supply gap forced on local
Farmers by several factors including flooding which
ravaged several farms and covid-19 pandemic.

The PAN President further said there is need for the
government to support the value chain in order to meet up
with the demand as he added that no economy can
operate outside the purchasing power of its citizens.
