Zamfara state government has begun the supply of 350 trailer load of fertiliser to farmers for the 2019 farming season.
The state governor, Alhaji Abdulaziz Yari, while launching the sales of the commodity in Tsafe on Wednesday said that each of the 14 local government areas of the state would receive 25 trailer load.
“We have decided to launch the sales of fertiliser at this time this year so that our farmers can buy and take their fertiliser to their farms in good time.
“Zamfara has continued to be the major supplier of the food needs of this nation and despite our security challenges, we will continue to maintain this position to produce enough and even export the excess,” the governor said.
He said that from peasant farming, the state had now grown into large scale farming with more farmers going into mechanised methods.
Yari, who launched the fertiliser sales in company of the All Progressive Congress (APC) governor-elect, Alhaji Muktar Idris said that the commodity would be sold at N6, 000 per bag.
He warned that any move to divert the commodity would be met with stiff penalties of the law.
Some farmers, who spoke to the News Agency of Nigeria expressed happiness over the timely distribution of the fertiliser.
Mallam Musa Tambari said, “I cultivate over five hectares of land annually, and if the fertiliser is given to actual farmers, l am sure there will be high yield in the state this year.”
Tambari appealed to governments at all levels to ensure that farmers do not face threats from bandits during and after the farming season.
The event was attended by farmers associations, traditional rulers and community leaders.

Military bombards bandits’ logistics warehouse in Zamfara – DHQ
The Defence Headquarters says the Air Component of Operation Hadarin Daji on Saturday destroyed a bandits’ logistics warehouse in an air bombardment along North of Birnin Kogo in Zamfara.
The Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Maj.-Gen. John Enenche, in a statement on Sunday, said the air bombardment was in continuation of the renewed onslaught against armed bandits in parts of the Northwest and North Central states.
Enenche said the air strikes were executed sequel to intelligence reports that indicated that the large structure was being used by the bandits to store their ammunition, raw rations and other logistics items in the area.
According to him, a Nigerian Air Force (NAF) attack aircraft was scrambled to engage the target, scoring accurate hits on the warehouse, which went up in flames as a result of its volatile contents, leading to its complete destruction.
“Four armed bandits guarding the facility were also neutralised as a result of the attack.
“The Chief of the Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, commends the Air Component of Operation Hadarin Daji for their professionalism.
“He directed them to remain resolute in the conduct of air strikes whilst continuing to provide close air support for ongoing ground operations in order to eradicate all armed bandits,” he said.

Anniversary: APGA applauds Zamfara Govt for tackling insecurity
”Gov. Bello Matawalle embarked on confronting the menace with great valour using his versatile experience as former Chairman, House Committee on Security and Intelligence.
“The State Government also embarked on partnership with the Federal Government under President Muhammadu Buhari and various key security stakeholders such as security outfits, former defence ministers, traditional leaders, Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) leaders and Civilian Joint Task Force (CJTF).
“After various consultation, a fact stands out that the crisis has taken ethnic dimensions, most especially after the creation of Hausa Yan Sakai vigilante groups by the immediate past administration.
“Establishment of committee headed by the former Inspector-General of Police, Muhammad Abubakar, for finding solutions to end banditry in the state by the state government can be identified as a leading factor for the success recorded,” Shinkafi said.
He recalled that before PDP took over the affairs of the state, rural areas and nomadic settlements were relegated educationally and economically, and this situation created an avenue for high crime rate.
“This informs government’s decision to provide schools, clinics and earth dams for the people and idea of Rural Grazing Areas (RUGA) came up as one of the solutions to the problem.
“The dialogue resulted in the release of thousands of captives abducted by kidnappers across the state, including the neighbouring ones.
“With this development, socio-economic education activities across the 14 local government areas of the state have been revived.
“Our rural markets closed down earlier due to insecurity have also been reopened, inter-ethnic relationship improved and over 80 per cent peace restored across the state,” he said.
He therefore urged people to continue to cooperate with the present administration irrespective of political differences for the state to move forward.
