The Vice-Chancellor, University of Ilorin, Prof. AbdulGaniyu Ambali, says the school will soon start the importation of goats for large scale milk production.
Speaking on Wednesday in an interview with newsmen in Ilorin, Ambali said the goats would be imported from other African countries.
“The university’s effort to go into goat milk production would contribute in no small measure to increasing sustainable food production in the country,” the VC said.
“The development would also enable the institution to commence large scale milk production,” he added.
He noted that the university is prepared to explore many avenues to increase its internally generated revenue. It has, therefore, established the centre and laboratories for manufactured products in the university.
He explained that the centre would cater for all manufactured products from the institution.
