He expressed his passion for agricultural businesses and emphasized the importance of providing hygienic and safe meat for the community.
His farm, KIRE INTEGRATED FARMS AND MARKETS LIMITED, located in Ikire, aims to reduce unemployment and increase the state’s internal generated revenue (IGR).
Mr. Alabi is pleased with the positive impact of his business, which has provided employment for about one hundred youths and aims to uplift his community.
He explained that his decision to invest in Osun State instead of Lagos was driven by his desire to contribute to his hometown and empower its residents.

After serving as deputy governor from 2018 to 2022, Mr. Alabi now focuses on managing his abattoir business and providing significant employment opportunities in Osun State. His long-term goal is to establish mechanized abattoirs and milk factories in all the local government areas of the state.
