“The distribution of free grains was deliberately done to crash prices of food items and ease the burden of Nigerians due to the current economic situation.

Expressing gratitude for the intervention, Ondo State chairman of Poultry Farmers Association of Nigeria, Olawande Fadipe, stated, “We want to thank the President and Mr Governor for this kind gesture.
