The Katsina State Government has reiterated its commitment to continue to support its agencies that would boost agricultural productivity.
The Special Adviser to Governor Aminu Masari on Agriculture, Dr Abba Yakubu Abdullahi, disclosed this on Saturday during the mid-term stakeholders meeting of the RAYUWA project, in Katsina.
The project is an initiative of Pyxera Global, an NGO that works to enhance food security in the country in partnership with the federal and state governments.
He commended the project for its impact on improving the lives of the rural populace in Kafur, Malumfashi, Bakori and Danja Local Government Areas of the state.
Earlier, the Director of the programme, Dr Lekan Tobi, said the primary aim of the project was also to improve the agricultural practices of farmers.
According to him, it can be achieved by supporting them through the value chain of food production, processing and marketing.
He explained that the RAYUWA project had provided seeds and other farming inputs to farmers and trained them on modern methods of planting and processing various food crops.
Tobi noted that the project had also encouraged school enrolment by providing teaching and learning equipment and recruiting teachers within the benefiting communities.
