Nneamaka Okafor :No hybrid Rabbits were imported. If you believe that crap you do at your own peril. NLDA is a federal government program. It is unfortunate that some people do not understand the politics of the center.  Over 4000 youths so far have been trained in different skills and the business of their skills. They would be given their start-up capital before year end.Any other information other than this is falsehood, malicious and of no moment.

Emeka Iwuala: Soon IMO state will be engulfed by rabbits as our beloved governor launches rabbits empowerment scheme . IMO is indeed in the part of development………
