Ahead of the 2023 general elections, All Progressives Congress (APC) Senatorial candidate for Kaduna Central zone, Muhammad Sani Abdullahi Dattijo, has reached out to the electorate by distributing two trucks of fertilizer to them for the planting season.
Distribution of the1, 200 bags of NPK 20:10:10 branded fertilizers, for this year farming season, was flagged off Wednesday and it is expected to reach farmers across 81 wards in the seven local government areas of Giwa, Birnin Gwari, lgabi, Kaduna North, Kaduna South, Chikun and Kajuru that make up the Kaduna Central Senatorial District.
Dattijo, who was represented by a close associate and stalwart of the party, Alhaji Ahmed Maiyaki, said, “the gesture is to encourage our local farmers across our constituency to enhance food production and food security and ultimately reduce poverty among our people in line with the manifesto of our great party.
“We want to call on the committee saddled with the responsibility of distributing the fertilizer to ensure that only deserving local farmers benefit from the gesture. We also urge the good people of Kaduna Central and indeed the entire state to continue to support the APC as the party is working assiduously to reconcile and unite all party members ahead of the forthcoming 2023 polls.
“We must ensure that only genuine local farmers are given the fertilizer while also mobilizing eligible voters to get their PVC in our constituency and beyond in order to unite and support our great party ahead of next year’s general elections at all levels,” Maiyaki said.
Also speaking, the state secretary of the party, Alhaji Yahaya Babapate commended the APC Senatorial flag bearer for the gesture and urged other contestants for various positions across the state to emulate Muhammad Sani Dattijo in order to promote the party ahead of 2023 general elections.
