The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Administration disclosed that it has allocated the sum of $4.5 million to the FCT Fadama Covid-19 Action Recovery and Economic Stimulus (FADAMA CARES) Project. 

The amount, which is out of a total allocation of $15 million from the World Bank for the COVID-19 CARES, is to ensure the successful implementation of the programme in the FCT. 

The Mandate Secretary of the Agriculture and Rural Development Secretariat, Abubakar Ibrahim stated this on Thursday at the Sensitisation workshop on FCT FADAMA CARES for Top Policy Makers in the FCTA. 

Ibrahim explained that the Programme is a World Bank Budget support to the FCT administration targeted at supporting existing and newly emerging vulnerable and poor households, Agricultural Value Chains, and Micro & Small Enterprises that have been negatively impacted by the COVID 19 Pandemic. 

He added that the World Bank has also set a target of providing grants support to 12,283 individual farmers as well as the upgrading of 17 Wet Markets for the FCT Fadama CARES Office. 

Ibrahim further assured FCT residents of the ARDS's commitment to successfully implement the programme.
