He said this  at the  commissioning a  Chicken cottage outlet, owned by him,  on Saturday in Abuja.

He promised to open more of the outlets in strategically important locations in Nigeria.

“Our target is to have at least One Chicken Cottage Restaurant in every state in Nigeria.

” Ultimately, we intend to develop Chicken Cottage Nigeria as the regional hub for all operations in Sub-Saharan Africa.

“Towards this end,  I have given approval to the management to commence talks with Chicken Cottage International.”

Abubakar expressed optimism that establishment of the cottage outlets in states would help reduce unemployment in the country.

“You can be sure that having at least one Chicken Cottage in every state will help get Nigerians working again.

“We will provide gainful employment to thousands of Nigerians who would be earning living wages which in turn contributes to reducing unemployment in Nigeria.”

He said that Chicken Cottage would also contribute to patronage of local farmers as the main raw materials for the products would be sourced locally.

This according to him include agricultural produce such as chicken, vegetables, potato, rice.

“My ultimate joy will be to patronise our local farmers and see them have their produce bought and used here in Nigeria and Africa,  thereby empowering them.

“Furthermore, the multiplier benefits of this enterprise would extend to transporters, beverage suppliers, Appliance manufacturers, Artisans, Furniture makers.
