FG to compensate fish farmers affected by flood in Kebbi state
- Written by Abdullateef Abubakar Jos
Tekpat, who did not disclose the amount, said that that the Federal Government had also
commenced the production of five million fingerlings to be given to the fish farmers.
He explained that the department was liaising with the state Ministry of Agriculture to
identify the affected farmers.
Tekpat also said that the department would ensure that farmers, who lost their sources of
livelihood were adequately assisted, adding, ``we want to ensure equity so that the actual
farmers affected receive compensation’’.
In a related development, Tekpat said that the Federal Ministry of Agriculture would
commence data capturing of farmers for the next distribution of fertilisers in the state.
He said that the new data capture exercise would last for two weeks and was aimed at
capturing a minimum of 100 people daily in each ward in the state.
He said the exercise was intended to register five million farmers nationwide, adding that
47,000 farmers, who would soon be redeeming their packages, were registered for the
accelerated dry season rice farming scheme.
He said that each farmer was allocated three bags of assorted fertilisers, two bottles of
chemicals and 50 kilogramme of improved seedlings.
``The 50 kilogramme seedlings would enable each farmer to produce at least seven tonnes
of crops per hectare.
``The Federal Government will ensure that food security challenges were addressed and
further reduce un-employment in our society,’’ he said.
Tekpat said the efforts were made by the private sectors to establish rice mills in Warra,
Argungu and Dakingari to encourage commercial rice production.
