On Friday, May 17, 2024, the State Interests and Governance Authority (SIGA) paid a working visit to the Kumasi Abattoir. The SIGA delegation was led by Mr. John Boadu, who was warmly received by the Managing Director of Kumasi Abattoir, Mr. Alhassan Mahamadou, along with his team.

In his opening remarks, Mr. Boadu emphasized the importance of such visits, stating, "It is for SIGA to come to Kumasi and also visit how one of our entities, which is Kumasi Abattoir, is doing.

 I can't only sit in my office; sometimes I have to pay a working visit to know the realities on the ground." 

He acknowledged the financial performance of the Kumasi Abattoir, noting that while the entity is doing well, there is significant room for improvement. Mr. Boadu stressed the need to incorporate technology into their operations to enhance effectiveness and efficiency.

Mr. Alhassan expressed his gratitude to Mr. Boadu and the SIGA team for their visit. He highlighted some of the challenges faced by the abattoir, particularly the use of outdated machinery and the need for capital investment to meet their demand targets.

 "Kumasi Abattoir was set up to provide hygienic meat for public consumption, and we are the only entity that provides healthy meat for the masses," he stated, underscoring the critical role the abattoir plays in public health.

Dr. Agyemang Budu, the energy consultant at SIGA, also spoke during the visit. He thanked Mr. Alhassan and his management team for their dedication and efforts in maintaining the operations of Kumasi Abattoir.

The visit concluded with a tour of the facility, where SIGA officials observed the current operational state and discussed potential areas for technological upgrades and investment to boost the abattoir's capacity and efficiency.
