Jigawa to harness Ethiopia's agricultural 'magic' for wheat farming

 Jigawa to harness Ethiopia's agricultural 'magic' for wheat

The Jigawa Government has unveiled plans to harness Ethiopia's magic towards effective wheat farming in the state.

Recall that Governor Umar Namadi is already in Ethiopia to understand "the magic wand" that made the East African country a key player in wheat farming in Africa. 

This was contained in a statement signed by the Senior Special Assistant Media Affairs to the governor, Hajiya Zainab Rabo Ringim, and made available to newsmen in Kano on Tuesday.

According to the statement, an expert in the field and a group of close aides are accompanying the governor on his trip.

Rabo Ringim said the move to boost wheat production in the state was informed by the desire of Governor Umar Namadi's administration to consolidate the position of the state as number one in wheat production in the country. 

She said that the governor and his team while in the east African country would explore innovative agricultural practices and deploy the same to boost the sector in Jigawa State. 

Hajiya Rabo Ringim said the governor and his team would particularly understudy Ethiopia's National Wheat Production Initiative and engage in cognate experience-sharing to grow wheat farming in the state. 

"Of interest is the Ethiopia rain-fed and irrigated wheat production fields that made her a number one spot in Africa in anticipation to domesticate lessons here in the state," she said.

The Senior Special Assistant of Media Affairs said the study tour was in fulfilment of Governor Umar Namadi's administration's desire to enhance food security and generate employment in the state and beyond.
