As part of efforts to boost food security and increase job creation, the National Agricultural Land Development Authority (NALDA) has secured 103 hectares of farmland for the establishment of integrated farm estate in Ebonyi State.
The land donated to NALDA by the Ebonyi State Government would be used for the development of hatchery and fingerlings production and is expected to create employment of about 3000 youths.
The executive director NALDA Paul Ikonne disclosed this during a courtesy visit to the Ebonyi State Governor David Umahi assured that the project would be completed by October 2021.
Maintaining that they have the mandate of President Muhammadu Buhari to reactivate abandoned farm estates and develop new ones for food security, Ikonne assured that the Authority would work inexorably to turn around the fortunes of agricultural activities, with a view to generating wealth and creating a new lease of life for Ebonyi youths.
