Katsina state begins distribution of fertilizer to farmers


The Katsina state government in Northern Nigeria, has begun sales and distribution of 12,727 bags of fertiliser for wet season farming across 11 wards in Mashi Local Government Area

The Council’s Committee Chairman on Sales and Distribution of the Commodity, Abu Rimi, made this known in an interview with the Journalists in Mashi on Tuesday.

He said the price of the commodity was pegged at N5,000 per bag and 89 bags each were earmarked for sale across the 143 existing polling units in the area

According to him, the committee will closely monitor the entire process.

“I commend the state government’s efforts for timely procurement of the fertiliser and the speedy commencement of the sales and distribution of the commodity,’’ he said.

It would be recalled that the Katsina state government had last week began the sales and distribution of fertiliser for the wet season across the 34 local government areas at a uniformed price of N5,000 per bag.
