The African Development Bank (AfDB) has donated relief materials, including fertilisers, seeds, agrochemical and tiller machines to flood victims under its Fadama II supported programme in Plateau.
Speaking at the occasion, the bank’s Task Force Leader, Mr Danladi Ebbah, said the gesture was to provide succour to farmers grossly affected by the 2012 flood, which ravaged most southern parts of the state.
Ebbah gave the breakdown of the Flood Disaster Relief Support to include 5,100 bags of NPK, Urea and SSP, 16.5 metric tonnes of maize, rice and wheat Seeds, 8,200 satchet of assorted vegetable seeds, 6,300 litres of agro-chemicals, and ten small Tiller machines.
He said the management of the bank appreciated the pains of the farmers whose crops and homes were destroyed and to those who lost their love ones as a result of the flood.
He said the input support would enable the affected farmers to sustain their production.
