As of 2019, Nigeria has an annual deficit of over 60 million tons of chicken meat processed from boiler valued at 120 Trillion Naira. Importation takes up about 40 percent of local consumption. This means that the market for chicken products is very high, especially during festive seasons.
Today, with the economic devastation brought about by Covid-19, and the rapidly increasing dollar rate, local poultry producers, will begin to take a much higher share of the market, as importation becomes more expensive.
Any wise youth should see this as a massive opportunity to tap.
