Delta State Goat Butchers Union (DSGBU) has defended the state government’s six entrepreneurship schemes/programmes meant to create 6,000 direct jobs in the next six months.

The State President of DSGBU, Mr. Peter Nwankwo told journalists weekend in Asaba that these initiatives would create jobs and wealth, diversify the economy, engage youths in productive enterprises, nurture entrepreneurs and leaders and promote communal peace and security.

He stated that the government should not compromise in its determination to deliver prosperity to everyone in Delta through our S.M.A.R.T agenda, especially in goat farming and other areas like piggery, poultry, fisheries, and vegetable farming.

While commending the governor for appointing Mr. Austin Chikezie as Agriculture and Natural Resources Commissioner, he posited that all butchers in the state would cooperate with the state government to sustain the good agric policies.

Corroborating, Chairman Oshimili South Local Government Council, Mr. Osita Anmi said the credentials of Chikezie are total enough to qualify him for the appointment especially his antecedents, promising to partner with the ministry to make sure the State Government excel in the agric policies.

It would be recalled that the state government recently launched some schemes such as Youth Agricultural Entrepreneurs Programme (YAGEP), Skills Training and Entrepreneurship Programme (STEP); Production and Processing Support Programme (PPSP); Tractorisation; Extension of Loans; and Development of Agro-industries.
