He  appealed to the governments to assist the farmers  in whatever ways possible.

Nigerian Agricultural Insurance Corporation

He called on the Nigerian Agricultural Insurance Corporation to promptly assist affected farmers, who registered with the organisation.

On loan repayment, he said that it was  discouraging that a substantial number of farmers who took loans were affected by flood and unable to pay back the loan.

“Most farmers have invested heavily without realising profit, and they are finding  it difficult to reinvest due to financial constraints,” he said.

He noted that other farmers would only benefit from the credit facility when current beneficiaries would repay.

The chairman said that agriculture loan defaulters had been given up to the end of 2022 to pay back their loans.

Kaduna State Ministry of Agriculture

He urged Kaduna State Ministry of Agriculture to send extension workers for possible assessment of farms ravaged by flooding for assistance.
