FG Announced Plans To Reach Over 60,000 Farmers With Highly Subsidized Input by abc115: 3:19pm On Aug 08, 2023
FG not Tinubu has announced plans to reach over 60,000 farmers with highly subsidized inputs. It will be executed under Agricultural Transformation Agenda Support Program. There was a flag off in Kano recently. FG will contribute 80% farmers will pay 20% from the redemption of his or her inputs. Target is smallholder farmer. I will encourage farmers to physically visit @FmardNg
to engage them. They have programs but they do not communicate.


The Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, has announced plans to reach over 60,000 farmers with highly subsidised inputs to boost food production in the country as part of the implementation of the Agricultural Transformation Agenda Support Program Phase One (ATASP-1) for the actualisation of the present administration’s resolve to attain food and nutrition security.

The Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Dr. Ernest Afolabi Umakhihe, who was represented by the Director, Projects Coordination Unit Department (PCU), Mr. Bukar Musa, explained that ATASP-1 would also help to attract private sector investment, reduce post-harvest losses, as well as add value to local agriculture produce. He said the ministry via the National Agricultural Growth Scheme and Agropocket (NAGS-AP) has commenced the distribution of subsidized farm inputs to smallholder farmers across the North Western States.

Speaking at the flag-off ceremony of NAGS-AP in Kano State, Umakhihe said that the event was very important for the ministry as it would help to boost agricultural production and guarantee access to quality agricultural inputs such as fertilizer, seeds, pesticides whose distribution.

He noted that the federal government is committed to paying 80 per cent of the total cost of the input package while each participating farmer is expected to pay the 20 per cent balance for the redemption of his/her inputs at the redemption centre.

Umakhihe added that “in order to increase the level of transparency, accountability and efficiency in the input delivery process, the federal government this year approved the introduction and use of ICT platform for delivery of the inputs to farmers, making this year’s program a very notable one.”

He revealed that farmers had been interfaced with and helpline staff who will man the platform had also been sufficiently trained and supervisors of the inputs delivery activities at the redemption centers had also been appointed and engaged.

FG not Tinubu What exactly do they mean by that? That the FG can do something without his approval? Or they are simply trying to disassociate Tinubu from the enterprise in case it becomes another 'E lo fokan bale' scenerio?

Well, what do I know?

You haven't solved the problem of Bandits attacking farmers, you want to do this.

Too many problems bedeviling Nigerian farmers that subsidy only won't solve everything. Fulani herdsmen driving them from their farms, Nigerian security agencies extorting them when transporting their products to the cities, activities of trade unions monopolising the supply chain, pricing and other aspects of the business and many more, these are the reasons the cost of food is still very high all over Nigeria.

There are large areas of land in each state wasting, if the government is serious with farming, why can't they pick all these able men and women fermenting troubles and deploy them in the land to work 😂 or go for real mechanise farming. With that food will be surplus

Security nko?

Police and hoodlums on the road nko?

Bad roads nko?

This govt nor ready at all. If the bandits and herdsmen issue is not tackled every other input is in futility. Driving from north to south police and agberos impose huge illegal taxes on the truck drivers which in turn affect the price of food in the market.
The terrible nature of our roads is not left out too.

Mush may not be achieved if the concentration is on seedlings and storage alone.
