Fertiliser

Birnin Kebbi, April 16, 2019 Kebbi State government has confirmed the availability of 886,000 tonnes of fertiliser at subsidised rate of N5,500 a bag to farmers across the state to ensure a hitch free farming.

 

Alhaji Sani Dododo, the state government’s Spokesperson said this on Tuesday while briefing newsmen in Birnin Kebbi, shortly after stakeholders meeting on agriculture.

 

He said that the fertiliser would be sold to the farmers in the 225 wards across the 21 local government areas of the state at subsidised rate of N5, 500 per bag, instead on N8, 000 being sold at the open market.

 

Dododo said that the agreement on the sale of the fertiliser was reached after an extensive deliberation with the traditional rulers, All Progressives Congress (APC), LGA chairmen and members of farmers associations in the state.

 

‘‘The aim is to make the commodity accessible and available to farmers anytime they so desire and to have it at a more affordable price.

 

‘‘We have depots for the sale of the fertiliser to farmers in all the 21 local government areas,” he said.

 

The spokesperson reiterated the government’s commitment to continue its assistance to farmers through various interventions to boost agricultural production in the state.
