In a firm resolve to boost Agro-economic growth in the coastal communities, the Dr. Michael Tidi led administration of Warri South Local Government, on Friday November 8, donated six fishing boats with engines as well as fishing nets, to six Co-operative Societies in the local government area.

 

Chairman of Warri South Local Government, Dr. Michael Tidi, in an address, before presentation of the boats and accessories, explained that the essence was to boost economic activities of the beneficiaries, particularly in fishing and other related economic activities.

Dr. Tidi who expressed optimism that the initiative had enabled his administration to create jobs with its positive multiplier effects on the economy of Warri, tasked the benefitting co-operative societies to make optimal use of the fishing boats and nets, as well as ensure their maintenance, “so that the benevolence of this administration could be replicated for other Co-operative Societies or bodies”.
