Succour has come the way of some farmers whose farms fell victim to an angry flooding last year. The National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA has launched the distribution of farm inputs to 12, 243 of such farmers in Niger.

News Agency of Nigeria reports that the distribution of fertilisers and chemicals was held on Friday at the Niger State Agricultural and Mechanisation Development Authority in Bosso Local Government Area of the state.

Mrs Lydia Wagami, the Head of Operations, NEMA Minna Operation Office, said that the farmers were verified during an enumeration exercise carried out by the agency to identify victims whose farmlands were affected by flood in 15 local government areas.

She said that the distribution of farm inputs to farmers was part of the Federal Government efforts to ensure food security in the state and the country.

“This is the second phase of the agricultural emergency intervention programme with the distribution of fertilisers and chemicals to farmers affected by 2018 flood disaster.

“Each farmer is entitled to the input based on the type of crops they farm, rice farmers are entitled to nine bags of fertilisers and chemicals,’’ she said.
