ED Advocates CBN’s Intervention To Boost CRIN Research Efforts

The ED CRIN, Dr. Patrick Adebola, has advocated the Central Bank of Nigeria’s (CBN) intervention towards boosting research efforts in the Institute. Featuring on Channels Television Program, repeated on NTA Channel 251, hosted by the CBN Initiatives, the ED appreciated the efforts of the CBN towards assisting cocoa farmers in the country. He opined that for a lasting and sustainable cocoa production, the Institute must be empowered towards the production of improved hybrid cocoa seedlings. We have the technical expertise, but are limited by inability of funds. The CBN’s intervention, through provision of grants, will enable CRIN to reach millions of farmers in Nigeria with hybrid cocoa. Our training acumen on good agricultural practices will assist the farmers to produce safe cocoa, without pesticide residues, for local and international consumption. With our equipped Flavour Quality Laboratory, we are better positioned to ensure good chocolate flavor of international standard. Financial support by CBN to CRIN will go a long way in achieving President Muhammadu Buhari’s vision towards jobs creation, substantial increment in agricultural outputs, youth and women empowerment, and economic development of Nigeria.
