Gov. Kefas To Distribute Free Fertilizer, Grains To Rural Areas


Taraba State Governor  Dr. Agbu Kefas  has hinted of his plans to distribute fertilizers and grains free of charge to all the rural areas of the councils to ensure bumper harvest across the state.

The governor said this while directing Heads of Local Government Administration, HOLGA, to return to their local government of origin.

The directive came on during an interface with them in the Executive Chamber of the Government House in Jalingo, the state capital.

He said this is to ensure maximum productivity and efficiency across the entire 16 local government councils of the state.

More to that, the move, he believed, would enable all the HOLGA to contribute to the transformation of their local government of origin.

He directed all the HOLGA not to work in isolation but to work closely with the traditional rulers, the youths, and the critical stakeholders of their councils.

He urged them to work closely with people in their respective communities to identify where courts and other structures will be situated.

He warned them against seeing the decision as an opportunity to enrich themselves but rather see the move as an option to contribute to the growth of their various local governments.

 He charged them to identify more areas of revenue sources in their respective local government and block all forms of revenue leakages.
