Nigerian govt constructs fish market – Official

Wellington Omoragbon, State Director, Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, FMARD, Edo, says the Federal Government has begun the construction of a fish market at Illushi community in Edo State.

Mr. Omoragbon told the News Agency of Nigeria on Monday in Benin that the fish market was located at Illushi in Esan South-East Local Government Area.

According to him, the market construction which started in December 2016 and is expected to be completed within six weeks; is being funded from the 2016 budget.

“The market will consist of eight open stalls with cold rooms, four toilets, bathrooms and a borehole,” he said.

He said that the location of market was chosen by the state government because fishing was the major occupation of the people.

According to him, Illushi community is located along the bank of the River Niger.

    And why would the government be doing this. Does this government have any focus on anything? we should not be wasting money on building fish market, when we should be investing the money on increasing production.

    Why is the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT constructing fish market? The Buhari”s government has no clue what roles local, state, and federal governments are assigned to play in democratic Nigeria — a federation.

    States governments buy fleets of cars and buses — some as gifts — and yet the federal government thinks that it is its responsibility to buy these states fire-engines and train their staff? What do local government do with funds allocated to them, not to mention state governments? What would the federal government do next? Built market for every local government?

      And why have the people not constructed it prior to now? since you know the role of private sector in job provision, have you not been asking Buhari to provide Jobs? let the people enjoy the facility initiated by FG,they can expand it if they want and not troop to Abuja to ask FG to concession it to them
