|FG To Create 500,000 Jobs From Irrigation Farming by naijagro: 9:33am On Feb 26, 2018|
The Federal Government says it has concluded plans to create additional 500,000 jobs from irrigation farming.
President Muhammadu Buhari stated this at the inauguration of governing boards of all the 12 River Basin Development Authoriry (RBDAs), Nigerian Hydrological Agency (NHSA) and the National Water Resource Institute (NWRI) in Abuja.
Represented by the Minister of Water Resources, Suleiman Adamu, the President said government would raise irrigable lands from the current 130,000 of land to 500,000 hectares over the next 14 years.
He said fish production which would hit one million tonnes of fish per year would create 20,000 jobs.
He urged the agencies to develop policies that would enhance water supply for both human consumption and agricultural activities to increase food production in the country.
Adamu said that the governing boards were reconstituted to reposition all the 12 River basins across the country to embark on massive agricultural and irrigation activities.
