Gojogojo added: ‘”The reason why we endorsed Radda is that he is a farmer, and as a farmer we believe he is going to do everything possible to boost agriculture in Katsina.
 

“Therefore, we have to give his ambition all the necessary support, because when the agricultural sector is boosted, it means many people will be engaged in farming.
 

“If more people engage in farming, we are going to have more production of farm goods.

And it will alsoboost the economy of the state.
 

“Like you all know, even the insecurity will disappear if more people are supported to engage in farming, because they will not be redundant and they will have enough cash with them.


 
In his remarks, Radda assured the farmers that the agricultural sector will get attention from his first his administration, if elected as governor.
 

He said he was a trained extension worker, therefore it has become necessary for him to give more priority to that sector, when elected.
 

“Any country that wants development, must give the agricultural sector the needed attention. 
 

“In Katsina state, we are not proud of anything better than farming, because over 85 per cent of our people are farmers.
 

“And statistics have shown that over 80 per cent of small and medium entrepreneurs in the country are under the agricultural value chain.
 

“Therefore, the small and medium industries we have, without farming, 80 per cent of such businesses will collapse.

” Radda said.
 

He commended the organisers of the event while he assured his support and commitment towards supporting and boosting the agricultural sector in the state.
