Subsidizing  fertilizer  by Governor Umar Namadi  remains a clear factor that is  facilitating agricultural transformation through   food production agenda.

This was disclosed by the chairman of the All Farmers Association of Nigeria (AFAN), Alhaji Idris Yau Mai Unguwa Jaga shortly after inaugurating a committee on the sales of fertilizer by Governor Umar Namadi on Friday.

He said that provision of adequate fertilizer and other input at  subsidized rates, would enable  farmers to multiply their production at both dry and rainy seasons, with profit orientation and minimal loss, adding that Governor Umar Namadi has done a commendable job by slashing the cost of fertilizers from 25,000  to 16,000 Naira.

” We are certain that Jigawa farmers would benefit from the subsidy and I am sure that all those who were inaugurated to oversee the fertilizer sales would work selflessly to ensure that all categories of  farmers benefit from the gesture without bias,” he stressed.

Idris Yau Mai Unguwa Jaga reiterated his association’s determination and zeal to promote agriculture in order to actualize good production and economic progress in Jigawa State at both dry and wet seasons.

He thanked  Governor Umar Namadi for putting agriculture in a front row of his 12 points agenda.
