Kebbi incorporates Fulani women into modern dairy production


The Kebbi State Government says its policy to train Fulani women on modern production of dairy products would soon commence.

Mr Abubakar Mu’azu-Dakingari, the Chief Press Secretary to Gov. Abubakar Atiku-Bagudu of the state, announced this in a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria on Wednesday in Birnin Kebbi.

He said that similar priority had also been placed on modern production of livestock in the state.

Mu’azu-Dakingari quoted the governor as saying this when he made a stop-over along Gulumbe–Ambursa road where he interacted with Fulani women hawking milk.

According to him, Atiku-Bagudu told the women that the administration was committed towards modernising agriculture, including livestock production, in the state.

He emphasised that the state government would achive this through the training of Fulani women and nomads while modern farm implements would be provided to them.

“The governor assures to provide them with animal feeds for optimum benefit and advise them to enroll their children into schools to enable them acquire both religious and western education.

“He provided financial support to the Fulani women to enhance their capital as parts of economic empowerment,” the spokesman said.

Responding, the women expressed gratitude to the governor for the gesture and acknowledged his commitment towards improving the socio-economic wellbeing of the nomads.
