The majority of this fund beneficiaries will later lament the goats knack head for rocks down in the kitchen .Some will even make fake report of missing goats to police after offering the goats to their respective stomach .Nigeria government should learn how to invest properly for revenue returns . It isn’t a bad idea but the people with lack of husbandry farming technics can’t grow the business to yield returns .Bottomline, this is another failed investment by government
