The Kwara State Government North Central Nigeria has distributed improved seeds and fertilizers to farmers in the 16 Local Government Areas of the state to cushion the challenges of food security in the state.
The flag-off ceremony for the distribution of improved seeds and fertilizers to Kwara farmers was held at the office of the Kwara State Agricultural Development Agency, KWADP.
In his remarks at the ceremony, the state Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq explained that the flood disaster that occured last year had a negative effect on the country.
Royal Times reports that the governor emphasised that his administration recognizes the challenges of food security and has consistently put in place various programmes to improve the living standard of the populace.
Represented by his Deputy, Mr. Kayode Alabi, the Governor said Kwara State as an agrarian state is blessed with fertile lands that can produce virtually all crops grown in the West African region because of its strategic geographical location.
