The Nigerian Army School of Military Engineering (NASME), says it has trained 25 women on a three-month intensive course on modern fish farming in Makurdi, Benue .
Col. Sagir Musa, Deputy Director, revealed this to newsmen recently.
“The focus is to ensure that barracks women, youths and the unemployed graduates and other school leavers in the barracks are gainfully employed in agro related busineses,’’ he said.
Musa said Shodanke noted the engineering school had established simple modern facilities for mega chick hatchery, fish farming, goat rearing and cattle ranches to cater for all categories of interested members of the NASME family.
“I am happy to state that the number of emerging income earners arising from the noble initiative of the COAS is daily on the increase here in NASME cantonment,’’ Musa quoted Shodanke.
The army spokesman also said Abubakar headlined the various achievements of the BIIP; while commending the leadership of the NASME for taking the necessary steps for the realisation of the noble intention of the COAS.
