Gombe Gov Yahaya launches 2021 fertiliser sale

Governor Muhammadu  Inuwa Yahaya of Gombe state has launched this year’s fertiliser sales to farmers in the state 

Yahaya disclosed this while speaking during the official flag-off of fertiliser sale to farmers for the 2021 farming session on Friday.

He said the commodity would be sold at the rate of N7, 500 per bag as against N9, 600 sold in the market, adding that his administration would continue to subsidise the price of the commodity while strengthening other agricultural interventions.

Yahaya, who also inspected the Gombe Fertiliser Blending Plant, told newsmen that the plant had been abandoned for nearly 19 years and it had become necessary to resuscitate it.

“In order to sustain the supply of fertilisers to the people at the right price, in the right quality and at the right time, we need to restore production in this plant. We worked together with TakAgro and as of today, you can see what we have achieved.

“We will sustain this and continue with this company to improve productivity so that states around us will also be supplied from this plant,” he said.
