NIGER STATE GOVERNMENT TO SUPPORT SMALL FARMERS IN THE STATE FOR GREATER PRODUCTIVITY

Niger State Governor, Abubakar Sani Bello says his administration will do its best to fully support small Farmers in the State to enhance their productivity in the best interest of Nigerlites and Nigeria as a whole.

Governor Sani Bello disclosed this when he spoke at a summit currently going on at the Nation's Capital City, Abuja.

The Governor, who described the programme as laudable and timely considering the current recession that has negatively affected so many aspects of governance, said going forward, it might be difficult for Governors to run their expenditures if they do not have alternative sources of revenues adding that an initiative such as this is key.

Governor Abubakar Sani Bello while , acknowledging the need to support small Farmers with tools and finances, so as to increase productivity and ensure food security as well as sufficiency, also noted that this will go a long way in curbing insecurity in some parts of the country especially the Northern region that have being battling with security challenges.

He added that making provision for small scale farmers in the budget will go a long way in making it easier when there is cash to back it up emphasizing that the programme is very important in all aspects and believe that most of his colleagues will key in to it.

The summit is on Innovative and Strengthening of Small Farmers Capabilities Towards Productive Land Restoration Amid COVID-19 in Nigeria.

i hope you're not one of those people who thank governors for paying salaries...like, are the governors doing the workers a favour by paying them their own salaries?
