One year after a pilot project of N1 million
(6,400 Euro) yielded a turnover of N42 million (267,363 Euro) for a co-operative
of Esan (Nigeria) poultry farmers, come plans for further
The core investor in the project under the aegis of the Association of Esan
Professionals has announced plans to invest and set up seven other co-operative
groups in the five local councils of Esanland in Edo Central Senatorial
District. According to the association, the new vision will form part of
deliberations in its economic empowerment workshop slated for Irrua in Esan
Central Council of Edo State later this month.
The chairman of the workshop planning committee, Mr. Sam Eigbokhan, said
the vision began three years ago when the association decided to use the
abundant skills available within it to create awareness of the economic
potentials of Esanland.
He said the success story of the pilot project, which generated N42 million
turnover in less than one year, has galvanised the association to venture into
other key areas of the economy to help the Esan people out of poverty.
