Farmers were inturn applauded for their perseverance, resilience despite the challenges faced in the region caused by the socio economic crisis, yet remained persistent in the poultry sector.

NW Governor Adolphe Lele Lafrique has asked recipients of the peoducta of CDENO to continue production in order to meet demands in the market. 

"Thanks to this initiative, there will be a boost in the poultry and pigery sector of the region. Recipients should make good use of the products so that impact will be felt at the level of consumers, in the quality of the products consumed, to meet demands of the region and the country at large. Feeding the region is also a way of reducing insecurity", Adolphe Lele Lafrique, Northwest Governor.
