In an innovative approach, the state government plans to engage local hunters and equip them with the necessary tools to protect farms and the environment.

Grateful for the partnership, Mr Friday Idoko, the consultant representing Etienne Global Agro, commended the Ministry for the opportunity to establish a Starch Production Plant in Kogi State. This venture aims to position the state as a leader in the domestic and international starch market, creating employment opportunities and contributing to economic growth.
