According to the Poultry Association of Nigeria (PAN) the closure of Nigeria’s border by the Federal Government has reduced smuggling of chicken into the country.

Prof. Eustace Iyayi, Registrar and Chief Executive Officer, Nigeria Institute of Animal Science (NIAS) explained that the reduction in smuggling of finished commodities into Nigeria would enhance the increased production of primary products that are processed to obtain the final products.

Iyayi said that the NIAS’ ultimate goal was to guarantee food security and have the Nigerian livestock industry organised enough for self-regulation in line with global best practices.
