The Nigerian Army says it has taken steps to boost poultry and other agricultural activities as part of effort to key into the Federal Government’s food security policy.
The Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Faruk Yahaya, said this today in Abuja, at the opening of a three-Day Poultry Management Workshop organized by the Nigerian Army Farms and Ranches Limited.
Yahaya, represented at the workshop with the theme, “Gaining an Edge in Poultry Management” by the Chief of Logistics (Army), Major General Omotomilola Akintade, said that the Company was established to spearhead the Nigerian army’s involvement in the federal government agricultural programmes and expose it to agriculture and its full value chain.
The Chief of Army Staff added that the workshop was organized to rekindle the effort of the Nigerian Army at providing viable and sustainable agricultural programmes and ventures through effective farming and ranching.
