Kebbi State still maintains its leading position in food production despite the recent flood disaster that destroyed many farmlands in the state, the state Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Hassan Muhammad, has said.

He made the assertion at a 2-day workshop for the state’s farmers and stakeholders held in Sokoto.

Also speaking at the workshop, the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Agriculture of the state, Joel Aiki, said the state has acquired about 4,000 ton of millet seeds to support dry season farmers, while another 5,000 ton of seedlings were being expected from CBN.

Aiki, however, advised farmers in the state to embrace insurance to cushion the effects of flooding and other disasters that could affect their activities.
