Today we share with you testimonials from our clients these are unedited :
Olughor Blessing, one of Hadur’s agro-tourists says,
“Though fish farm business is not as easy as people say but taking some steps can make it easy.
With the training i got from Songhai in Porto Novo in conjunction with Hadur Travels, on return I was able to join hands with some notable fish farmers in Sapele, Delta State to form a co-operative known as “Sapele Fish Farmer and Sellers Multi-Purpose Society. Now we produce fishes to table size and sell to consumers to enable the public within Sapele environs get fishes at cheaper price. Some persons believe cat fish is for the rich but our group has been able to make fishes cheap for the public and have also been able to create wealth for ourselves as young and educated Nigerians.”
From a family on Easter tour :
Thank you so much. We had a splendid time at Songhai Farms. Every arrangement done by Hadur Tours excellently executed. Made friends with another family we had shared the bungalow with. A simple place but filled with much gain. Overwhelmed by the huge natural blessings God has given us in Africa yet untapped…Motivated to wake up and also be a change agent in our community. It was restful, peaceful and yet provocative short Easter break. My family can’t stop speaking well of the trip. I am sure we will visit again soon! Keep up the good work.
Mbaegbu Chuks Augustine of Ecocities Initiatives says “the knowledge I gained from my visit to Songhai has also helped to grow our poultry farm beyond imagination. In addition to that, we have started both tomatoes and green pepper farming in Enugu.
Enugu is not known for growing tomatoes in commercial quantity but we have been able to achieve that. ”
Mr John kunu : has this to say :
On the 21st of February, a friend and I embarked on what we thought was going to be a normal sight-seeing day trip to Songhai Farms in Porto Novo, Benin Republic but which turned out to be a totally fascinating experience.
Our trip started at about 5.30am because it was an environmental Saturday and we wanted to get to the border town by 7am. After immigration formalities at the border, we crossed by foot and were met by a driver and vehicle from Songhai Farms, as arranged by the very efficient guys at Hadur Travels and Tours. The trip to the farm from the border took just about thirty minutes.
Having been in the agric business for about 15 years and having visited several large farms in Nigeria and abroad, I thought I had seen it all and was not expecting anything new but was pleasantly surprised by my Songhai experience. We were fortunate enough to have been conducted round the farm by The Director himself, Rev. Father Godfrey Nzamujo who was taking a group of reverend fathers from Nigeria on a tour.
He first took us to the natural gas plant, where gas was being produced from waste to power the massive generators that provided light for the whole complex. Next we went to the numerous large fish ponds, the grasscutter, quail and poultry sections where all the bird droppings were constantly being washed into the fish ponds to serve as food for them.
We also visited the re-cycling plant where all manner of waste plastic were being processed into materials for making buckets, cups and other plastic utensils.
Finally we made it to the crop farms and I was introduced for the first time to the revolutionary concept of the use of positive bacteria added to farm compost to boost crop yield and make chemical fertilizer unnecessary.
The results were mind boggling.
In all, it was a most fascinating trip and I will surely be back for a longer visit.
