75 year old farmer appeals to FG for support


A 75-year old farmer, Baba Abdu Gadau in Itas/Gadau Local Government Area of Bauchi State has appealed to the Federal Government to provide people in the area with enabling environment for them to actively engage in irrigation farming.
Gadau, also an ex-officio of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Local Government Area, said the area was blessed with rivers and water reservoirs resulting from Jama’are river basin where food crops such as wheat, rice and vegetables can be grown and harvested in commercial quantities.
Alhaji Baba Abdu Gadau, who was among party officials converged at the council secretariat Friday to receive the Democratic Enlightenment Initiative, a non-governmental organization saddled with the responsibility of educating rural dwellers on policies and programmes of the state government, said the area also has fertile land for both rainy and dry-season farming.
Gadau, who observed that the Itas/Gadau area with God’s given facilities for agriculture such as rivers is also suitable for fish farming, one of the areas that enhance economic activities, commended Governor Mohammed Abubakar for the provision of fishpond where youths are being trained on fish farming for self-reliance.
He also commended the Federal Government under the able-leadership of President Buhari for its determination to ensure the dredging of Lake Chad silted in recent years which hitherto provide means of livelihood for millions of Nigerians.
Alhaji Baba Gadau described the election of President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2015 general elections as an act of God which requires no appeal, stressing that Nigerians that are anti-APC are either thieves, backbiters or hypocrites.
The Itas/Gadau APC ex-officio also expressed delight with the recent pardoning of prison inmates, six of whom from their area by Governor Mohammed Abubakar, and prayed God to reward him abundantly.
He therefore called on people of Itas/Gadau and the entire citizens of Bauchi state to give the government all necessary cooperation and support in its determination to take the state to greater heights.
