The NEGPRO scheme is a Federal Government Intervention Scheme aimed at producing 50million eggs by 2018, while also creating over 1 million jobs from the poultry chain value amongst others.
The NEGPRO scheme is to be set up in all 36 states including the FCT and would be able to ensure that Nigeria becomes self sustainability in the production of eggs while the scheme would also support the Homegrown School Feeding Program (HGSFP) of the present administration.
