“The essence of our gathering here is to inform people about the decision of the Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Barau I Jibrin, to distribute 41, 400 bags of fertilizer to farmers in Kano State. It is a donation, free of charge. No farmer is expected to pay a dime. 

“This is the beginning of the raining season in Kano, and farmers are in dare need of fertilizer. So, he decided to distribute 69 trucks of fertilizer across the three senatorial districts of the state, and the distribution will commence soon.

“Agriculture is one of the key components of our economy as it contributes a lot to our GDP. It’s the mainstream

“This is not the first, and it will not be the last time that he would be supporting farmers. We have done that in 2023, and here we are today. We hope to attain food security to feed ourselves and export to other countries. By God’s grace, we will achieve this,” he said.

While wishing farmers a blessed farming season, he urged the beneficiaries to make good use of the gesture and invest in their farms so that they can feed themselves and contribute to the attainment of food security in the country.
