Kano farmers hail FG’s agricultural transformation programme
Farmers in Kano state have commended President Muhammadu Buhari for the introduction of Anchor Borrower’s Programme (ABP), aimed at transforming agriculture towards self sufficiency in food production in the country.
A cross section of the farmers interviewed by the News Agency of Nigeria , on Friday in Kano disclosed this, saying that the progarmme had assisted in enhancing agricultural value chain in the country.
Alhaji Aminu Isa, a rice farmer, said that the Federal Government under the stewardship of Buhari adopted proactive measures to enhance farmers access to agricultural financing and extension services to encourage productivity.
Isa said that the farmer support services initiated by the Buhari administration had mobilised participation in agriculture and galvanised drive to achieve self sufficiency in food production.
“The Buhari administration has encouraged many people to go back to the farm through the ABP scheme.
“It addressed the problem of fertiliser scarcity, provides job opportunities to the teaming unemployed youths, reduced poverty and enhanced wealth creation in the society.
“The programme builds farmers’ capacity, enhance entrepreneurial skill for value addition and create market for the produce.
“We are indeed grateful to the president for his support to farmers,” Isa said.
NAN reports also that over 40, 000 rice farmers and 26, 000 cotton growers are participating in the ABP programme in Kano State.
An entrepreneur, Alhaji Mahdi Tahir, added that the Buhari administration had initiated viable programmes aimed at encouraging growth of Small and Medium Scale Enterprises (SMEs) in the country.
Tahir noted that the feat achieved by the administration in the development of cottage industries would accelerate sustainable social and economic development of rural communities.
Mr Muhammad Abdulsalam, a resident, who corroborated earlier opinion, added that the administration had executed viable programmes to transform the power sector; education, health and road network in the country.
“The president has shown greater commitment to reinvigorate the power, education and health sectors. He ensured the completion of ongoing road projects and initiated new ones to enhance transportation services.
“He has also performed creditable well in the fight against corruption as well as promoting transparency, accountability and good governance,” he said.
Also, Mrs Bilkisu Ahmed, a women activist, said the administration had been able to record significant successes in the counter insurgency campaign in spite of numerous security challenges facing the country.
“President Muhammadu Buhari has tackled the insurgency, decimated Boko Haram insurgents in the Northeast, and restored the morale of the military by re-organising and equipping them.
“Further more; the APC led government under his stewardship rescued thousands of people under the insurgents’ captivity as well as secured the released of some abducted Dapchi and Chibok school girls,’’ she added.
The ABP is a critical component of the federal government agriculture transformation agenda designed to encourage rice and crop productions as well as processing to achieve self sufficiency.
It is also aimed at enhancing farmers’ access to fertiliser, seeds, inputs, value addition and create market for the produce.
The programme is being implemented by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) in partnership with Bank of Agriculture (BOA) and designated agricultural input dealers otherwise called “prime anchors”.

The governor described the first phase of the exercise which also targeted 50, 000 households as “successful.”
Ganduje lauded President Muhammadu Buhari for allocating 139 trucks of assorted food items to the state.
Also speaking, the Chairman of the state’s COVID-19 Fund Rising Committee, Prof Yahuza Bello, said that the beneficiaries were selected carefully in each of the over 400 wards in the state.
Bello said the items would be distributed to the targeted persons to ensure that the aim of the gesture is achieved.
Meanwhile, Gov. Ganduje inaugurated a sample collection center at Middle Road in Sabon Gari area of Kano metropolis.

Lockdown: Kano tomato farmers seek pest control measures, access to market
Some tomato farmers in Kano have advocated for pest control measures to accelerate cultivation of tomato and other perishable produce in the state.
They also advocated for easing of the restriction on movement to provide access to the market for the produce.
A cross section of the farmers made the call in separate interviews with the News Agency of Nigeria on Thursday in Kano.
Maikudi Ibrahim, a tomato grower in Jaba-Gama area of Kano, said that cultivation was becoming more difficult due to pest infestation of tomato plants.
Ibrahim lamented that pests were more prevalent during rainy season and exposed them to losses, the trend he described as discouraging.
“I have been practicing tomato farming for many years. I have experienced this kind of pest destruction in the past years.
“The arrival of the rain also affects the plants as many plantations wilted to the rain.
“We call for the governments’ intervention to boost cultivation and halt farmers jettisoning tomato cultivation for other crops because of pest invasion,’’ he said.
Another farmer, Mr Bautre Musa said that many people in the area engaged in tomato and perishable produce cultivation in view of its lucrative nature.
Musa said that most farmers lost their investments to the pests due to the lack modern technologies to control it.
“We no longer get good returns due to low market occasioned by the COVID-19 lockdown.
“It is desirable to review the lockdown measures to enhance farmers’ access to the market.
“We also call on the government to assist farmers with chemical and irrigation facilities to encourage productivity,” he said.
Alhaji Muhammad Bello, the Chairman of farmers’ association in the area, said tomato and other perishable produce cultivated by farmers were being transported to other parts of the country.
“Pest control is imperative to sustain tomato cultivation which provided means of livelihood to our people.
“It is because of the mass cultivation that a tomato processing plant by the Dangote Group and other companies came to the state.
“This is a proof of our contribution to the national food security,” he said.
NAN reports also that prices of tomato and other perishable produce had indicated significant increase due to low supply from the farms.
A basket of tomato is now sold at 4, 000 as against its old price of N3, 000 before the rainfall.
Similarly, a small size bag of pepper is sold at N7, 000 and onions N8, 000 as against its previous prices of N5, 500 and N4, 000, respectively.
A bunch of green leaf is also sold at N900 as against N300.
Abubakar Ali, a trader, attributed the hikes to decrease in the supply of the produce.
Ali, however, expressed hope that prices would go down when supply improved.
“Tomato and pepper are being supplied to the market from Kazaure in Jagawa and Katsina States.
“We are anticipating improvement in supply in the next coming weeks from the farms in Kano.”
