SOUTH West Chairman of the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN), Chief Kola Akosile, has called on Nigerians to embark on large scale production of cassava and other cereals such as Maize and Soya beans.
Akosile while speaking with journalists in Ibadan office of MAN on Thursday said the demand for Maize and cassava is higher than what is been produced by farmers in Nigeria
He disclosed further that the shortage of maize and other products has forced up the price of products as well as scarcity of some of the products in the market and if it continue like this the effect will be harder on the people as chicken and other poultry product will also be affected.”
Speaking on the involvement of MAN in enhancing mass production of farm produce, Akosile said “MAN is already partnering with farmers to boost production, we have a scheme which creates automatic market for their product.”
