supplied to farmers under the scheme.
The Governor stated this when he received a delegation of the Presidential Fertilizer Initiative(PFI) and Fertilizer Producers and Suppliers Association of Nigeria (FEPSAN) Monitoring Team in Jigawa Yesterday.
The Governor who said the process to the commencement of production was faced with challenges, including the allegation of NN46b fertilizer scam said he was optimistic that the Initiative will succeed despite the challenges that had dogged the process, stating that the allegation was sponsored by the same group that had profited from the importation of fertilizer and were not happy with the Initiative.
“We thank God today, production has started, Jigawa has picked already 4000 metric tonnes of fertilizers and distributed to the farmers and Just yesterday the rice producers through the Chairman House Committee on Fertilizer ,said to me the fertilizer is excellent”.
“So whoever says the quality is not good maybe he did not use our fertilizer. Adding that “What we have done is we are the first to pick the Fertilizers because of the dry season rice farming and it was applied at the nurseries and the result was superb, so nobody should deceive Nigerians that there is problem with our own blending”.
He added that “in any case for any batch we do lab analysis and check quality noting that “sometimes I am shy when he has to ask for lab analysis from trusted friends” But I still have to do my job”
The Governor thanked the FEPSAN President for his commitment to the project saying “the issue of money or profit was never on the table for the whole time, rather it was the issue of delivering the fertilizer at the right price for the farmers because we have the clear understanding and the President too that for us to be competitive we have to start looking at our inputs for the farmers”.
“We have to see how best we can reduce the cost of inputs for the farmers so that they can produce competitively” he said. Adding that “While you are improving yields you are improving production, you also have to reduce costs that will give better profit for the farmer and make him produce more and competitive”
So with all that in our minds we managed to get through to this”
Alhaji Badaru added that “another dynamic team that had participated so well in the process is the National Sovereign Wealth Fund who had expressed professionalism in their dealings.
He further revealed that 7 blending companies had begun producing and soon the market would be flooded with the fertilizer.
He thanked the President for the Initiative saying it is very timely and will diversify the economy as we look at agriculture, the major input is fertilizer and if this is handled then the little addition on machinery and improved seeds by research institutes would also follow
The Governor who also reacted to the calls for a legislation on gas export said” it is always good for legislation but it is purely a business venture and I do not believe it will cause any legislation
“We would do whatever with Morocco according to our Nigerian law and they will also work according to their own laws and the countries that would deal with us would also deal with us according to their laws”
He maintained that “I do not think there is any need for special legislation for us to sell our product”
Earlier, FEPSAN President and Chairman of the monitoring team, Mr. Thomas Etuh had commended the people of the state for releasing the Governor to work on the initiative.
He had also listed several challenges to the commencement of the process which he said would eliminate subsidy on fertilizer by saving at least N60billion in budgetary Provisions in fertilizer supply for 2017 and boost foreign exchange savings of $200 million.
