FEDERAL CAPITAL TERRITORY ADMINISTRATION PLEDGES COMPLETION OF MORIBUND AGRIC PROJECTS

The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has disclosed plans to ensure the completion of various moribund agricultural projects in the territory.

Mandate Secretary for the FCTA Agriculture and Rural Development Secretariat, Alhaji Abubakar Ibrahim, disclosed this in a statement by Deputy Director Information, Zakari Aliyu, in Abuja.

Ibrahim said completion of all the moribund projects would reposition the agricultural sector toward meeting the yearnings of FCT residents.

During a visit to the Bwari Area Council to assess the performance level of some agricultural facilities, Ibrahim said efforts would be made to put in place standard agriculture infrastructural facilities at the area council.

The Secretary said the ongoing project for the FCT fish farm estate would facilitate full-scale takeoff of fish production and processing activities at the centre.

He directed officials of the department of fisheries to convene an urgent meeting with contractors handling various projects in the estate, with the view of addressing their challenges and getting them back to work with immediate effect.
