At least 16,000 Kano indigenes are to benefit from various agricultural intervention programmes launched yesterday in the state, Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has said.

Speaking at the formal launch of the programmes Thursday, the governor described the programme as a great milestone towards his administration’s agricultural drive, aimed at creating employment opportunities and providing food security in the state.

The governor added that the programmes were aimed at improving the livelihood of the farmers, especially the women and people with special needs and also to encourage more indigenes to go into farming to curtail the looming food insecurity for the country.

He assured that the state government would continue to build strong synergy with development partners towards the development of agriculture in the state.

The programmes are in collaboration with KNARDA, Kano State Agro-Pastoral Development Project (KSADP), SASAKAWA, APPEALS and NG-CARES.
