Women rice farmersSokoto State government is to embark on massive construction of tube wells for farmers to avoid drought in the state.
The Project Manager, Sokoto Agricultural Development Project, Alhaji Abubakar Malami disclosed this in an interview with Daily Trust.
He said that this was based on their projection that the state might experience drought this year due to the shortage of water.
Malami noted that there was insufficient water in their dams to support all year round farming across the state. "Our dams are not filled to capacity, this is what ignited our fear for imminent drought in the state,” he stated
The SADP boss added: “It is in view of this that Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal directed us to construct tube wells for farmers across the state and provide them with pumping machines at a subsidized amount.”
He said the state government had purchased enough fertilizer and improved seeds for dry season farming. "We have taken adequate measures to ensure that the commodities are not diverted and have reached all farmers no matter their locations in the state," he added.
