As part of Governor Umar Namadi’s 12-point agenda to elevate the living standards of citizens, no fewer than 18,000 fingerlings have been released into the Birninkudu Dam in Jigawa State.
According to Mr Sulaiman Aminu, the Public Relations Officer of the Jigawa Ministry of Agriculture, the state government took the step in order to boost fish production in the region.
This initiative aims to stimulate fishing activities and follows a similar successful effort in 2016 when the state government stocked Warwade Dam in Dutse Local Government with 300,000 assorted fingerlings.
He further noted that the government procured and distributed fishing gears such as nets, hooks, containers, and canoes to support local fishermen in the community.
