From Lawal Sa’idu Funtua, Katsina
Minister of Agriculture and Natural Resources, Chief Audu Ogbeh has tasked International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD)
communication officers on the use of effective communication in monitoring and documenting the funds activities.
The minister stated this at the weekend in Katsina while distributing HD digital video cameras to the State Projects Officers (SPOs).
The minister who was represented by the Director Department of Agricultural Land Resources and Climate Change of the ministry, Dr. Sunday Edigbo said with the cameras the activities of the funds would be better monitored and documented.
According to the minister, the age of relying on report writing to asses projects progress was long gone as he said visuals provided more insight and reality of the projects executed.
Ogbeh therefore urged the communication officers to always make effective use of the families to protect them from damage.
He similarly commended the coordinator of the programme, Alhaji Muhammad Lawal Idah for steering the successful execution of the mandate of the programme.
