Poultry farmers from Ondo State under the aegis of Poultry Association of Nigeria (PAN), have commended the Federal Government initiative of the National Egg Production (NEGPRO), saying it would go a long way to increase egg production in the country.

The state chairman of the association, Mrs Augustina Ebiwonjumi, said apart from increasing egg production in the country, the initiative will also empower more farmers and create jobs.

Ebiwonjumi, while speaking during a town hall meeting of poulry farmers in Akure, Ondo State capital, noted that an increase in the egg production will positively contribute to the Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) of the state and the nation’s GDP.

Speaking during the meeting, the Senior Special Assistant to the state governor on agriculture, Mr. Akin Olotu, described the initiative as laudable, saying it will stimulate egg production in the country.
