The wife of Katsina State gover­nor, Hajiya Zakiyya Aminu Ma­sari, has distributed agricultural inputs to women cooperatives in San­damu and Zango local governments.

Speaking at the occasion, Mrs. Masa­ri said the agricultural inputs are distrib­uted under her NGO, ‘Women, Youth and Children Improvement Support Ini­tiative.’

Mrs. Masari said the agricultural in­puts that include chick feed, drinkers and feeders were distributed to boost agricultural and commercial activities of the women.

She further added that the distribu­tion of the inputs was a fulfillment of a promise made during electioneering campaign by the current administration.

She noted that the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration has within the last seven and a half years implemented policies that boosted live­stock production in the state.

According to her, the state govern­ment, in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, has distributed supplementary feeds to all categories of livestock farmers to alleviate their suf­fering during the dry season.

Mrs. Masari further said government has established and managed several livestock facilities, in addition to an­nual vaccination of livestock and local poultry to prevent them from contacting disease.

She called on women to ensure judi­cious use of agricultural inputs provided to them.

During the occasion, beneficiaries of the agricultural inputs commended the wife of the state governor for her assis­tance to make them self-reliant.

They pledged to make good use of the inputs and called on other non-gov­ernmental organizations to initiate ways of assisting women and children.
