NG-CARES aims to support the government in responding to the COVID‐19 crisis by restoring the livelihoods and food security of poor and vulnerable households as well as promote recovery of MSEs. Gov. Inuwa Yahaya stated this at the inauguration of the programme at Kuri village in Yamaltu-Deba Local Government Area of the state.

    He said that N3.

    He said that his administration had been consistent in the sales of fertiliser at subsidised rate as well as distribution of farm inputs since 2019.

    “This demonstrates our commitment to supporting our farmers toward boosting agricultural productivity and improving their livelihoods by ensuring timely distribution of affordable fertiliser, in fulfilment of our campaign promises.” He said to ensure that the fertiliser got to the grassroots farmers, the commodity would be supplied directly to the Local Governments for onward sales and distribution through the polling units.

    He said he had directed that for the 2022 farming season, a bag of NPK 20-15-15 fertiliser should be sold at N19,000 per bag instead of N25, 000 being sold in the market.

    “I would like to call on our hardworking farmers to take full advantage of this opportunity to advance the cause of their farming activities.” Yahaya also stressed the need for peaceful coexistence among stakeholders in the agriculture sector, urging farmers and pastoralists to cooperate with one another for peace to continue to reign in the state.

    “I am appealing to our farmers against encroaching on grazing reserves and cattle routes.

    Gombe SUBEB places embargo on transfer of Nomadic teachers – Official

    The Gombe State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) says it has placed embargo on the transfer of nomadic teachers in the state.
    The Chairman of the board, Mr Babaji Babadidi, said this on Thursday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Gombe.
    ‘’Teachers posted to nomadic schools should henceforth be retained.
    “We placed embargo on non-transfer of nomadic teachers since they have acquired the necessary training,’’ Babadidi said.
    He frowned at the indiscriminate transfer of the few teachers to conventional schools.
    According to Babadidi, Gov. Inuwa Yahaya is passionate about Nomadic Education.
    He said that the State Government had so far expended over N900 million to drastically reduce out-of-school children in the state.
    He argued that no government had spent such amount on such an educational initiative since the state was created in 1996.
    Babadidi said the money was used to construct classroom blocks, establishment of new nomadic schools, provision of furniture and collapsible tents, amongst other facilities.
    He commended the National Commission for Nomadic Education (NCNE) for adopting a new approach to reach the nomads through learning by radio.

    Tinubu’s choice of Shettima, right decision for victory in 2023- Gov Yahaya

    Gov. Inuwa Yahaya of Gombe State on Tuesday, described the choice of former governor of Borno, Sen. Kashim Shettima as  Vice Presidential candidate of the APC as a good decision.

    Yahaya said the decision would guarantee  victory for the APC in the 2023 general elections.

    The governor made  this known  in a  statement in Gombe by Mr Ismaila Uba-Misilli, the Director-General, Press Affairs, Gombe Government House.

    He said the choice of Shettima was a masterstroke that would facilitate the party’s smooth sailing to victory in the forthcoming 2023 presidential elections.

    According to him, the former Borno state governor is a committed and loyal party man and a great asset to the ruling party.

    He stated that Shettima would add “immeasurable” value to the APC presidential ticket.

    He said ” Asiwaju will not have made a better choice. The former Borno state governor is a highly cerebral, eloquent, competent, courageous and cosmopolitan leader.

    “Shettima has succeeded in building bridges, reputation and friendships across the country; and I believe he has the capacity, acumen and political sagacity to deputise the Jagaban”.

    Yahaya while congratulating the one time chairman of the Northern Nigeria Governors Forum, said Shettima had the qualification to be APC’s vice presidential candidate.

    “With his background as former lecturer, banker, agricultural economist, ex-governor and parliamentarian with visionary and patriotic ideologies, Sen. Shettima will be a ’round peg in a round hole’ as a vice president.”

    The governor stated that the Shettima ticket was an excellent combination that has already given APC an upper hand and set the opposition off-balance ahead of the 2023 elections.

    Yahaya who is the APC party leader in Gombe state pledged his personal commitment and support and that of the APC in the state to the Shettima ticket.

    “Gombe is a strong APC base and we shall deploy our political arsenals to ensure sweeping victory for our great party at all levels.”
