BusinessNewsNigeriaFormer Deputy Governor Embraces Abattoir Business

Former Deputy Governor of Osun state, Mr Benedict Alabi says he embarked on abattoir and farm investment to help in producing premium and hygienic meat for public consumption.

Alabi who served as deputy governor of Osun from 2018 to 2022, during former Gov. Adegboyega Oyetola’s tenure disclosed this in an interview on Friday in Osogbo.

“Kire Modernized Abattoir was unique in supplying hygienic meat to hotels, multinational catering clients, distributors, and direct sales via personal contacts.

“I believe the abattoir will help in increasing food production and also create an avenue for job opportunities.

“Kire Integrated Farm under my leadership also seeks support from the African Development Bank (AfDB) among key partners while waiting for the Bank of Agriculture (BOA) for its nod.

“You will agree with me that without their support it will be kind of greedy on our part and that shows the significance of strategic partners,” Alabi said.

The former deputy governor commended President Bola Tinubu for his Renewed Hope Agenda in the agricultural sector, adding that the president’s initiatives have started yielding positive results.

Alabi, however, said for modernized abattoirs and mechanized farming systems to strive, more resources are needed in the area of electricity, modern farm equipment, viable ranches, and a good market environment.

The abattoir is located at Km 29, Ife-Ibadan Expressway, Ikire, Osun.
