Farmers Hail FG Distribution Of Fertilizers And Seeds To Them by taharqa: 2:39am On Dec 28, 2012
The Jigawa Chapter of the Rice Farmers Association of Nigeria (RIFAN) has praised the Federal Government for distributing fertiliser and other inputs to irrigation farmers in the state.

The chairman of the association, Alhaji Adamu Maigoro, said in Auyo, Jigawa that the gesture would assist farmers and encourage agricultural activity.

The Federal Government had distributed 7,200 tonnes of fertiliser at 50 per cent subsidised rate to rice farmers in the state. The Federal Government also distributed 2,400 tonnes of improved rice seeds free to the farmers this season under its agricultural palliative programme to accelerate rice production in the country.

Maigoro said the measure would enhance farmers access to fertiliser, and seeds and encourage them to produce more.

He said: “We praise the Federal Government over the support and we will put more effort to double paddy rice production.

“More than 48,000 hectares of rice plantation was earmarked for cultivation in the state.

“Some of our members have also set up rice mills in Hadejia to enhance rice production in the state.”

The chairman further commended the Jigawa Government for providing 2,000 tube wells and hand pumps for irrigation farmers in the state.

“The state government is also clearing typher grass on the Hadejia River Basin. This exercise will encourage irrigation activity and provide means of livelihood for peasant farmers,” he said.

That is certainly good news, but don't get ahead of yourself.
The fact is that subsidized fertilizer has been a policy of the FG for ages.
Hopefully, they have improved the situation where those same fertilizer bags show up on the open market the very next day.
We can only hope.

There is a lot of work that needs to be done but this is obviously a good development.

When a minister knows his onion and he/she is ready/allowed to work, we'd definitely have good results.

Even Republicans rarely applaud Democrats for their good programmes. What's the definition of an opposition party? Are they meant to applaud the government or put it on its toes? Shior.

And what about the money-looting, lavish spending and massive corruption that has been going on by the minute but you GEJ goons wont be frank about it because your sense of morality has been bedevilled by sentiments, bigotry and "na-my-person" syndrome.

NB: I'm neither ACN, CPC, PDP and all these claptraps mongers you pple sell your souls to.

1st off, fvnkk PDP a million times. PDP, ACN, CPC, ANPP etc = THE SAME. But dis talk about 'Massive' looting na im i no rili undastad. Is it 4rm dat ridiculous Punch's #5trn article where half of d supposd 'looted' money came from pipeline vandalism and crude theft!! You are presently commenting on an article essentiali saying smthing we HAVEN'T heard for more than a decade: farmers acknowledging receipt of Agric inputs from d FG! You think dat just happend just like dat? I recall d President saying last yr dat he was going to stop d MASSIVE and ENTRENCHED fertilizer and seed Racketeering dat has bn going on in d Min of Agric by so-calld POLITICAL FARMERS for decades and was d main reason why only about 13% of Real farmers get these inputs on average annually, and dismissing him immediately cos i didnt just see hw dat was possible. This has happend in just Months. The former EXTREMELY CORRUPT system has bn completely dismantled and anoda partially private system (EGSS) where farmers now get these inputs DIRECTLY tru dier e-wallets has replacd it. The access rate has gone from 13% to 65% in just 7 months of dis new system, and if dis Jigawa dry season case is anything to go by, d initial challenges shld reduce and d rate increasd going forward. Massive looting? If there is 'massive' looting going on hw come MOST projects that previous govts didnt do even if they were funding it are now bn done (from rails to Power, to schools, to inland ports, to key roads, to airports, to dams etc and equipments for agencies like FRSC, NEMA, Customs, Police etc); plus, i wonda hw 'massive' looting wud be going on in an increasingly OPEN environment...... Look Corruptn is still here truout d nation and in govts (significantly so in d FG), and I HATE CORRUPTN of any kind so wud be d 1st person to insist dat MUCH MORE needs to be done to continue d fight, but d idea of 'massive' looting? Nope. That is only in d mind of those ppl pushing it for dier own gain; and i gat to say, they are pretty IMAGINATIVE!! Imagine d #5trn article....
