Lagos, May 18, 2016 (NAN) The Poultry Association of Nigeria (PAN) says the poultry sub-sector is contributing 25 per cent to the nation’s Gross Domestic Products (GDP) annually, amounting to the single largest contributor to agriculture.

“The sub-sector is a major consumer of commodities such as maize, cassava, soya beans and polished rice. We have it on good record that poultry contributes 25 per cent of the agriculture GDP of the country. Poultry is probably the single largest sector in agriculture, for instance, we consume 25 per cent of the maize produced in this country; we consume a lot of the polish from the rice. We also consume the entire soya beans produced as by-products; we consume cassava so we play a very significant role in the country’s economy. We are very happy that at last the industry is getting the recognition it deserves’’
