Form coop to benefit from FG, Bagudu tells Kebbi farmers
Kebbi State Governor, Abubakar Bagudu, has called on the District Head of Bakuwai in Suru Local Council to mobilise farmers into groups, for them to benefit from Federal Government’s intervention programme.
Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Abubakar Dakingari, quoted the governor as saying that the intervention would go a long way in assisting the farmers and petty traders in the state.
He added that Bagudu’s administration would give more support to the farmers for increased food production, as well as encourage Fulani milkers to imbibe modern dairy production.
He said this during an inspection visit to Bakuwai where he interacted with dry-season farmers and promised to assist them.
Bagudu, who also visited Fulani settlements at Bambala and Runto Riskuwa, directed the relevant ministries to immediately provide the communities with potable water and other basic social amenities.
The governor ordered for the repair of existing boreholes and other water facilities in the settlements.
He renewed his call on all Fulani in the state to live in peace with farmers and other ethnic groups, as well as be of good conduct by avoiding criminality, drug addiction and other forms of vices.
“Engage in fruitful ventures and enroll your children into school,” said the governor.
He advised the Fulani to form joint security committee with leaders of other ethnic groups and security agencies towards checking unscrupulous elements in the society.
At Rugga Bello, Mallama Hadiza told the governor that the Fulani in the area were in need of tight security and potable water.
