CHUKWUMA EMELUE is the CEO of Enshine Enterprises. He hails from Aniocha North Local Government Area. He has an HND in Environmental Health from the Delta State College of Health Technology, Ufuoma, but was unemployed for seven years till he got enrolled into the Delta State Government’s Youth Agricultural Entrepreneurs Programme (YAGEP) in the 2017/2018 Cycle. Three years after establishment, he has diversified into fish processing and has acquired a plot of land for his permanent site.

Hear him. “Fish farming has been good and rewarding by the grace of God. After the first cycle, I was able to plough back the proceeds from my starter stock in spite of the challenges of inexperience. For greater profitability and to meet the demands of my clients, I diversified into fish processing to add value to my fish. I acquired an 80kg capacity fish smoking kiln to achieve this.

“At present, I have 13 tarpaulin fish ponds at DARDA and one earthen fish pond at Camp 74 Fish Farm Cluster. I have 4,000 fish in stock because I recently sold off some fish. The demand for cat fish is high. I have acquired a plot of land to be used as my permanent site in future.

“The job creation programme is a laudable project that should be sustained by successive governments.”
