Abuja is a burgeoning capital city, with rapidly growing population, robust hospital industry and other institutional consumers of FFL products. The Koso Panda Community is space loving and has shown this disposition towards Fleet Farms. This is evidently demonstrated by the Monarch who expressed the community’s gratitude to Fleet Farms for establishing the project in Panda. The farm is approximately one hour drive from the capital territory city of Abuja; and linked by road through Mararaba and Keffi. The Mararaba – panda major highway is undergoing rehabilitation by the federal government. Kano and Kaduna which are the commercial and industrial centers of Northern Nigeria are a couple of hours drive from Abuja: the farthest being Kano – about 4 hours. This is indicative of the ease with which farm produce can be moved across key industrial and commercial centre’s and neighboring state such as Niger and Plateau States.
