In the midst of the current challenges facing the poultry industry, the Poultry Association of Nigeria (PAN), Lagos State Chapter, has promised to make the poultry value chain more viable, by engaging in activities capable of making the business to flourish.
The newly elected chairman of the Lagos Chapter, Mr. Godwin Egbebe, who disclosed this shortly after the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Association, in Lagos, assured that it would do all within its power to ensure rapid development in the poultry value chain, within the state and the country’s agricultural sector.
Egbebe, who said that the industry plays important roles in the day-to-day lives of the entire populace, assured that himself and other executive members would, in the next two years, embark on a series of projects which would portray Lagos PAN as a force to reckon with in Nigeria and beyond.
He said: “In the next two years, during which time we are going to be calling shots as far as Lagos PAN is concerned, we are going to engage in numerous projects, which would place us indisputably as number one in Nigeria and even beyond the shores of the country. Part of what we intend to do is the establishment of a hatchery for day-old-chicks. This will be done in partnership with various individuals. Also, we are going to ensure a formidable working relationship with government, as it is a known fact that we are like Siamese twins in the development of the agricultural sector, especially the poultry value chain.” Guardian
