I’m excited because His Excellency, Alh. Yahaya Adoza Bello, the former Governor of Kogi State initiated this project and the incumbent Governor, Alh. Ahmed Usman Ododo has created the enabling environment for the project to thrive.

He added that management and Staff of Kogi L-PRES will not relent effort until there’s increase in commercialisation of Livestock farming as well as those on the value chain.
