INSIDE MIMIKO'S ULTRA-MODERN SEMI-MECHANIZED ABATTOIR IN AKURE(PHOTOS)

The Abattoir is of international standard and one of a kind not only in Ondo State but also in many other States of Nigeria.

As at date, an average of about 350 head of cattle are slaughtered and processed for human consumption from about 70 unhygienic local slaughter slabs scattered around the State. In the governor's resolve to curb the menace of supply of unwholesome meat processed in unhygienic environments, the administration reviewed  the original Abattoir Project to conform with international best practices  and awarded the contract  in 2011 in four (4) principal lots to very competent contractors as follows:

LOT I:Construction of Slaughter Hall, Lairage, Office Complex, Public Toilet, Bone Yard, Manure Dump, Incinerator, Underground Water Reservoir, Fence, Gate-House, Generator House and supply/installation of Abattoir Equipment and Laboratory Equipment/Reagents.

LOT II: Supply of Effluent Waste Disposing Truck and Meat Delivery Van with chilling equipment.

LOT III: Electricity supply to the abattoir facilities with 500KVA dedicated transformer and a 60KVA soundproof generator.

LOT IV: Drilling of boreholes and construction of overhead tanks for water supply. 

This abattoir complex was designed and completed with all necessary ancillary facilities to ensure steady and sustainable provision of wholesome meat to Akure and environs as a first step. It was the intention of the government that the facility be replicated in other major towns and villages of the State in due course.

The abattoir facility with capacity to process 200 heads of cattle in 4 hours will be ceded to a concessionaire under an agreed memorandum of understanding (MOU) to ensure consistent profitability and sustainability. The State through the Veterinary Services Department of the Ministry of Agriculture will be saddled with the statutory responsibility of quality control and conformity with international best standards in the meat processing and delivery industry.

Apart from this ultra-modern semi-mechanized abattoir project,Ondo is resolute to make the State the food basket of the nation.Gov. Mimiko therefore, established four agro-business cities: Ore, Auga, Epe and Isuada across the three senatorial districts, initiated the cocoa rebirth project and disbursement  of soft loans with agric inputs to farmers to ensure food security.

TOTAL NIGERIA PLC LAUNCHES NEW FLEET OF TRUCKS TO SUPPORT TRANSPORTERS(PHOTOS)

As part of Total Nigeria Plc’s commitment to support product transportation safety and efficiency by their transporters, the company has put in place a robust fleet acquisition scheme by renewing approximately 20% of its fleet of trucks in 2017. This was launched by the Management of the company, its Transporters, representatives of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) and other stakeholders.

Total’s investment in the purchase of the new fleet of trucks is to ensure that transportation of petroleum products around the country is safer and more efficient. Another main objective of this truck acquisition scheme is to further ensure continuous improvement of its Health, Safety, Security and Environment (HSSE) standards. Due to the sensitive nature of the industry it operates in and its products market, for Total safety has to always come first.

The initial 70 trucks acquired will be directly managed by Total’s Transporters; the company is also offering them required technical assistance needed to run safe and efficient petroleum product transportation in the country. The scheme will be of immense benefit to the Transporters especially as the current economic environment makes it difficult for majority to invest in new trucks.

In his speech, the Managing Director, Jean Philippe-Torres, said the success of this scheme is dependent on Transporters’ complying with the maintenance program for the trucks and ensuring that trucks are periodically audited and vetted by the company’s authorised inspection company. He further said that truck drivers should be periodically trained and must comply 100% with all On-Board –Computer (OBC) rules.

The second phase of the scheme will be in April, 2017 where an additional 140 trucks will be injected into the fleet. This makes a total of 210 brand new trucks to impact on improved product distribution and supply as well as support Total’s zero tolerance to road accidents.

Total Nigeria Plc is committed to implementing road transportation safety improvement initiatives in order to make Nigerian roads safer for everyone. On a flip side this scheme would also help create additional job opportunities for Nigerians.
