The Chairman of Bonny Local Government Area, Hon. Dame Anengi Barasua JP. has advised fishermen around the Bonny river routes to make concerted efforts at recruiting younger people to meet up the increasing demand for fish in Bonny LGA and beyond, warning that the agelong traditional occupation of Bonny people was to be guarded jealously.
Dame Barasua who came up with this counsel today when the leadership of the Indigenous Fishermen Corporative Union (IFCU) paid her a new year visit at Government Lodge, Bonny, thanked the Union for their efforts at preserving the occupation for which the LGA was known for, assuring that she would continue to work towards providing the right environment for businesses and other livelihood endeavours to thrive.
Earlier, the Leader of the IFCU delegation, Comr. Promise Bristol said they were on the visit for familiarization purposes, and to thank the LGA Chairman for the peace being witnessed on the waterways. He as well requested increased government attention in IFCU affairs, while presenting a symbolic Shiny-Nose fish as a new year’s gift to the LGA Boss.
