According to Dr. Bolarin, the choice of the University is for sustainability and to bring experts on board in the actualization of the plan to boost livestock farming in the State.

He explained that the Projects would revolutionize the poultry value chain, generate employment opportunities and stimulate economic growth within Kogi State.

Dr. Bolarin noted that the Project, which would be fully funded by the World Bank, said work will commence immediately the feasibility study is completed.

Today, we come before you with a proposition born out of our shared vision for progress and prosperity – the establishment of a hatchery and a 500 birds per hour automated processing plant.

Dr. Bolarin further states that “We recognize the Federal University Lokoja as a beacon of knowledge and innovation, and it is with this recognition in mind that we seek to forge a partnership that transcends boundaries and propels us towards a future of shared success. Your expertise, resources, and commitment to excellence are invaluable assets that we believe will greatly enrich our collaborative efforts.”

The Livestock Productivity and Resilience Support Project, funded by the World Bank, stands as a testament to our collective dedication to enhancing the productivity, commercialization, and resilience of selected livestock value chains in Nigeria.

At its core, our project seeks to strengthen the capacity to respond to crisis or emergencies in the livestock sector, a crucial component in ensuring sustainable development and economic prosperity, the State Project Coordinator added.
