“We will continue to support this programme at the National Assembly so that our farmers would gain more benefits from it. As representatives of our people, we will ensure that the federal government improves on this programme,” he said.
Earlier, a member, House Committee on Agriculture, Alhaji Munnir Babba Dan’Agundi, expressed delight on farmers turn out at the screening exercise.
Dan’Agundi said over 200 farmers have been screened in Warawa local government area and out of figures 30 farmers have collected their agricultural package that include urea, NPK and organic fertilizers, as well as seed and micro nutrient valued at N41, 750.

He said the lawmakers were in Warawa local government as part of their oversight visit to constituencies to assess the programme, saying “we are assessing successes and challenges of the programme.”
