As part of sustained efforts by Governor Abubakar Atiku Bagudu to encourage private sector participation in Agriculture and also ensure the promotion of other value chains like fish production, the Governor, on Sunday visited Kitari Fish Farm, in Bunza Local Government Area.
The visit by the Governor to the Farm located at Sabon Gari Jika, in Bunza Local Government, was aimed at encouraging fish production in large and small scales in the state by private individuals.
Bagudu, who was delighted with the big fish ponds he saw at the Farm, which is at its first phase of development, went round to inspect it
The Proprietor of the Farm, Alhaji Abbas Umar Bunza , said various species of fish are being bred inside the fish ponds in the farm.
He explained that, since he started production, people from within and outside the state have been patronising the farm.
Bunza also said, he has trained many youths on fisheries, so that they too could be employers of labour when they set up their fish farms.
One of the overseers of the farm , Abubakar Ladan , said that, it started with five fish ponds, with additional five now under construction.
” Work started here over one year ago, with five fish ponds. We are now adding five more , to make them ten ,” he averred.
