Senator Tanko Almakura, representing Nasarawa South senatorial zone has distributed 3,000 bags of NPK fertilizers and 150 herbicides to farmers in his constituency.
The distribution of fertilizers and herbicides was flagged off in Lafia.
Almakura while flagging off the destribition said that the unlimited demand for fertilizers by farmers necesited the destribution.
“I am giving out five trucks of trailer loads of NPK fertilizers to the five local governments in the senatorial zone with 150 cartons of herbicides.
“We must ensure equitable and fair destribution of the farm items appropriately to help improve the local farmers in the zone”, Almakura stated.
Also speaking, the acting governor, Dr. Emmanuel Akabe, who unvailed the products, commended the senator for the gesture to boost farming activities in the state.
Akabe appealed against sharp practices, urging the people to ensure equitable destribution of the farm products donated.
