He said “The farmers should use the farm inputs, fertilizers and seedlings for the purpose they were given to them. They are not for sale as the materials are meant to assist them to boost their agricultural production”

The farmers express their appreciation to President Muhammadu Buhari, the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Hajiya Farouk Umar, the Director-General of NEMA , Alhaji Mustafar Bello as they stated that the materials will be used to boost their farming for a bountiful harvest next year.

  1. Thanks for your posting on this website. From my own experience, there
    are times when softening upward a photograph may provide the photo shooter wwith a little bit of an imaginative flare.
    Many times however, this soft cloud isn’t just what exactly you had in mind and
    can in many cases spoil an othereise good photo,
    especially if you anticipate enlarging them.

  2. I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was
    good. I do not know who you are but certainly you’re going to
    a famous blogger if you are not already 😉 Cheers!

  3. I’ve been browsing on-line greater than 3 hours nowadays, but I never found any fascinating
    article like yours. It’s pretty worth sufficient for me.
    In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the
    web shall be much more helpful than ever before.

  4. Thanks for this glorious article. One more thing to mention is
    that the majority of digital cameras come equipped with some sort of zoom lens that
    enables more or less of any scene for being icluded by simply ‘zooming’
    in and out. These kinds of changes in focus length aare reflected inside the
    viewfinder and on substantial disxplay screen at the back of the very camera.
