Nigerian govt takes new action in Border closure


The Federal Government on Tuesday, inaugurated the executive officers of the National Fish Association of Nigeria (NFAN), to boost fish availability in view of the border closure.


Mr Edet Akpan, Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment, said the development was to encourage farmers and other stakeholders in its diversification programme.

“I am sure the national production of fish will not only increase, the quality and export value will also increase”, NAN quoted him as saying.

Akpan said the ministry had always being on the ground to support commodity associations and would not deviate from the norm.

The President of NFAN, Dr Gabriel Ogunsanya, said following the inauguration, more than over five million members of the body were ready to storm the markets with different species of fish to meet both local and international demands.

On border closure, the president said it was a laudable development, saying the association was not resting on its oars in taking advantage of the closure to boost production.

A member of the Board of Trustees and former lawmaker, Sen. Maina Lawan, pointed out that there were several prospects in the fish subsector that would help improve Nigeria’s revenue generation.
