“We know how discomforting it can be, but be rest assured it is in our collective interest. We cannot afford a situation in which farmers do not go to farms and at the end of the day we face shortage of food,” he said.
According to the governor, the state has provided fertilizers and other farm inputs for wet season farming. He appealed to the people of the state to comply with all the protocols of COVID-19 and continue to pray for those afflicted.
