“My sincere advice to the ministry of food and agriculture and the powers that be The time has come for us as a nation to stop playing games and politics with agriculture; otherwise, very soon we will have no alternative but to go through hunger and famine.”

He indicated, however, that the collapse of the poultry industry would lead to job losses.

“My greatest worry is the job losses. The collapse of the poultry industry will result in job losses in the country. Many of the poultry farmers have laid off their workers. I, for insistence, had 57 workers, but I have laid them off, leaving me with 7 workers. The poultry industry has the ability to create more than one million jobs in the country.” He lamented.
