The Acting Executive Director/CEO of the Council, Abdullahi Sidi-Aliyu, disclosed this during a one-day training and demonstration on processing techniques for high-quality cocoa beans in Akure, the Ondo State capital. The training was organized by Ondo State Cocoa Revolution Project.

Represented by NEPC Acting Director, Akintunde Folorunso, said the huge revenue was capable of attracting global players such as Nestle to transform the sector through forward integration into global value chains.

According to him, value chain development in the cocoa sector has great prospects in the export markets. He sought more partners and collaborators to get Nigeria to move above Cote d'Ivoire and Ghana.

The NEPC chief reassured that the Federal Government was strongly committed to the development of the non-oil export sector as the last defense of the economy.
