Jaba Local Government Council, Flags Off 2021 Fertilizer Sales

The Executive Chairman of Jaba Local Government Area, Honourable Benjamin Jock this morning flagged off the sales of fertiliser for the 2021 farming season in the council.
The Honourable Chairman in his address appreciated the Executive Governor of Kaduna State, His Excellency, Mallam Nasir Ahmed El-rufa'i for his indefatigable efforts in promoting  self-sufficiency in food production and industrial development in the state by making fertiliser available to the  farmers at the grassroot. The fertiliser will be sold  at the cost of #9,700 per bag, he said. 
The Honourable Chairman however cautioned against diversion of the product, saying that any group or individual found guilty of such unwholesome act would be made to face the full wrath of the law. Thus, he admonished those nursing such self-centered intention to divert the commodity and later sell it at an exorbitant price to the actual farmers to refrain from such evil thoughts. He stressed that the long  hand of the law is handy to deal decisively with anyone who refuses to heed to his warnings and the admonitions.
The Council Secretary Hon. Ezekiel Haruna  who also lent his voice at the occasion, prayed for a bumper harvest this farming season.The occasion was witnessed by Traditional Council,  members of 2021 Fertilizer Sales Committee, farmers and other invited guests.
