raise alarm
The Poultry Association of Nigeria (PAN) has warned that if
some urgent steps are not taken by the federal government,
the cost of chicken during the yuletide might be as high as
N10,000 per unit
The association, in a press release made available to
ONIFTV stated that with the increase in feed prices
especially soya beans and soya bean meal, the prices of
eggs and chickens might go out of reach of many
Nigerians.
The Chairperson of PAN, Ogun state Chapter, Blessing
Alawode further requested the federal government to save
Nigerian poultry industry from imminent collapse which the
industry now faces as a result of unabated rising in the
prices of bird feeds and concentrates used to feed
chickens.
She explained that the feed inputs such as soya beans are
going out of reach of an average poultry farmer with the
price of the commodity now increased from N115,000 that
was sold per ton in August to N215,000 in November,
2020, representing an increase of 86.95% within a four-
month period.
