IFAD reiterates commitment to train Kebbi rice farmers

Share This

The Kebbi Project Manager, International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), Mr Joel Aiki, said the IFAD would continue to train farmers in the state on modern rice farming.

Aiki made this known when, Gov. Saidu Dakingari, visited farmers on training in Suru Local Government Area on Tuesday.

He commended the state government for training the farmers as well as provision of fertiliser and seedlings to farmers that were trained by IFAD in conjunction with USAID.

The project manager gave the assurance that there would be an increase in production of rice due to the training and provision of farming inputs.

Dakingari, who visited the farmers on training as part of his inspection of ongoing projects, reiterated the determination of his administration to boost commercial rice production and encourage farming activities.

A cross section of the trainees expressed their resolve to engage in large scale rice production after the training, and called for support from state and international organisations. (NAN)
