I’m Mustapha Nadaji Prometer of Nadaji Beekeeping & Dev.Co.Ltd., and Chairman Katsina State Beekeepers Association. I’m 40 years old and I have one wife and one child. I’m Nigerian, from Katsina State Yar’adua Quaters, Katsina.
[Ed. Note- Katsina is a mostly muslim state in north central Nigeria, see map]
I have an interest in Beekeeping because it is my way of living. I identified Beekeeping as having the potential to provide employment and reduce poverty.
G: What kind of hives do you have?
200 top bar hives.
G: Is honey production enough to sustain a living for you?
Is not enough for me, because when you look at honey itself there are also bee by-products like propolise, royal jelly, pollen grain, bees wax, and the most expensive one- Bee Venom, which we sell as a strong antibiotic. All are money, especially in developing countries. I’m selling honey in Nigeria, ours is labelled Nadaji pure honey. Our customers are buying it at Market.
