A seven 7 member committee for the sales and distribution of fertiliser in the State have been inaugurated by Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya of Gombe State. The committee is headed by Mohammed Alhassan Fawu which has up until three weeks to complete its assignment.
Inaugurating the committee on behalf of Governor Inuwa Yahaya the secretary to the Gombe State Government Professor Ibrahim Abubakar Njodi charged members of the committee to live up to expectations considering the importance of the assignment.
Professor Njodi who attributed the delay in procurement and distribution of the commodity to certain government control policies urged the committee to begin work without any delay.
Professor Njodi said the committee is directed to take over the already delivered 120trucks of fertilizer for onward sale to genuine farmers in all the 114 electoral wards of the state.
He further directed that the commodity must be sold at government approved price adding that it has always been the policy of Inuwa Yahaya’s administration to deliver such important farm input on time for benefit of end users calling on the committee to do everything possible to speed up the sales and distribution exercise.
Responding on behalf of the Committee the chairman a seasoned agriculturist Alhassan Mohammed Fawu (Baraden Tangale) appreciated the government for the confidence repose on them assuring that they will discharge their mandate dispassionately targeting real end users of the commodity.
It could be recalled that Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya recently flagged off fertilizer sales and distribution at Dukkul in Funakaye local government area.
