Sir Ejiogu further maintained optimism on the manner the beneficiaries are handling the trade and assured them of his determination to continue to reduce the plight of the people through the provision of relevant assistance that would uplift them to complement with the rescue mission government's programmes.

He therefore advised them to keep their agro farm bubbling by replacing with smaller once immediately they sell off the grown up pigs and chicken to continue to make profit from the trade.
