JIBWIS urges Buhari to help farm­ers with fer­tiliser

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Bashir Liman, Jos

The Chair­man, Ulama’u Coun­cil of Jama’atu Iza­latil Bid’ah Wa’ikama­tis Sun­nah (JIBWIS), Sheik Sani Yahya Jin­gir, has urged Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari to pro­vide fer­tiliser to farm­ers in the coun­try.

Sheikh Jin­gir who spoke dur­ing the open­ing cer­e­mony of the 20th An­nual Na­tional Qur’anic Recita­tion Com­pe­ti­tion or­gan­ised by the JIBWIS in Jos yesterday, also urged the fed­eral govern­ment to utilise the re­cov­ered looted fund to pro­vide the nec­es­sary needs for the gen­eral pub­lic to cush­ion the cur­rent eco­nomic hard­ship.

He said if govern­ment pro­vided enough fer­tiliser, farm­ers would sup­ply ad­e­quate farm pro­duce, re­duce food scarcity in the coun­try and gen­er­ate rev­enue to both in­di­vid­u­als and govern­ment.
