Chairman All Farmers Association of Nigeria (AFAN) Imo state chapter Dr. Ayo Enwerem has described Gov. Hope Uzodimma as farmer-friendly and highly dedicated pro-agriculture leader. Enwerem said the Governor deserves not just commendation but countless thanks and deep appreciation for making thousands of bags of NPK Fertilizer available to members of AFAN in Imo state to boost food production.
The AFAN boss who spoke to our reporter via telephone conversation on Monday said the governor made available 750 bags of fertilizer to each of the 27 LGAs in the state totaling over 20,000 bags, from where each LGA AFAN chapter got at least 100 bags of free fertilizer to be shared to their members to enhance their productivity. Dr Ayo Enwerem said the association has never had it this good in the past few years due to obvious neglect of farmers by previous administrations leading to shortage of food and other agricultural produce in the state.
He assured that the genuine farmers in Imo would in the next few months hit the markets with quantum food items due to government incentives recently made available to them even as he called on weak farmers to wake up from slumber and feed the state and nation which is the core mantra of AFAN.
