The Adamawa State government promise to provide succor to farmers by selling fertilizer at a subsidized rate. During the flag off ceremony in Shelleng LGA of Adamawa state, The Governor Muhammadu Umar Jibrilla Bindow promise to develop agriculture in this State in order to reduce unemployment.

The government has made available a trailer of fertilizer for each of the 250 wards in Adamawa state at the rate of N5,500 per bag

The governor disclosed that they have 109 tractors for farmers and intend to buy more for each LGA to access 10 tractors saying the farmers can buy fertilizer direct from the government instead of using middlemen as in the past.

Mr. Obangi Darren who speaks on behalf of Adamawa State Farmers Association said “As farmers we are happy to experience this development today because for the past 16years we have been neglected”.

Traditional Rulers in Shelleng LGA in their remarks thanked the Governor for fulfilling his promise to farmers and also use the opportunity to appeal to the government to renovate the local government
prison and put mechanism in place to monitor the sale of fertilizer for the farmers to benefit  in order to avoid Politicians and government officials controlling the distribution.
