Nigeria’s Cocoa Output Can Surpass Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana, Says Cocoa Farmers Association of Nigeria

National President of the Cocoa Farmers Association of Nigeria, CFAN, Mr. Adeola Adegoke, says Nigeria’s vision of doubling the premium cocoa beans Ivory-coast and Ghana are jointly producing is achievable before 2026.

According to him, all that is needed is for smallholder farmers to be supported by cocoa producing state governments to irrigate cocoa farms all year round.

Additionally, members of the National Cocoa Management Committee, inaugurated by the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security, are calling for the establishment of the National Cocoa Board.
