The sokoto state Government has commenced distribution of 15,000 metric tones fertiliser, loaded in 500 trucks, for the 2018 wet season farming. The fertiliser will be sold to farmers at the heavily subsidised rate of 4000 Naira per bag.

Governor Tambuwal who also advised the farmers to imbibe the culture of using improved seedlings on their farms for improved Agricultural yields, distributed support packages to target beneficiaries of IFAD support programme in the state. Fertilisers, goats, fishery equipment and improved seeds were among the items given in support of the efforts of farmers in Sokoto State.
The Governor appealed to the farmers from the 36 villages who benefited from the agricultural support to see themselves as agents of economic diversification.

In his welcome remarks, the Permanent Secretary, State Ministry of Agriculture, Alh. Sani Garba Shuni, said the state Government has purchased the Super Sosat Millet seed and Faro44 Rice Seed for distribution to farmers. He also thanked Governor Tambuwal for his support to the ministry.

  2. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
