He said the Institute through its mandate has keyed into the Green alternative programme through various livestock value chain.  He later gave account of the 2016 budget implementation details to the Senate Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development. Registrar informed the distinguished Senators that Institute faced some daunting challenges in the course of the year 2016, notable among these are untimely release of capital budget, eviction from Office accommodation at Gwarimpa due to unpaid rent and Salary shortfall.
In response, the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture Senator Adamu AIbdullahi appreciated the sacrifice made by the Institute to have left the city center to rural setting in an uncompleted office accommodation. He also observed that of all MDAs visited fund appropriated for NIAS was least. He therefore pledged the Committee’s support within its powers.
