Kebbi to celebrate this restoration, as well as peace and security
The Argungu Agricultural and Fishing Festival was suspended for 11 years as a result of insecurity. This year, by the grace of God, this festival is back. I joined the people of Kebbi to celebrate this restoration, as well as the progress being made in restoring peace and security.
Festivals such as these, celebrated across the country, bring Nigerians closer together and help improve our collective appreciation of our diversity, while also projecting our rich history and cultures to the world. We must therefore continue to support and promote these festivals.
At the Fair I saw on display many products; all proof of the progress we have made as a nation in feeding ourselves. I am pleased that our farming, fishing and pastoral communities have truly embraced our administration’s programmes, and helped prove that we can grow what we eat.
Kebbi State has played a pivotal role in our agricultural revolution. Our food security program started there in 2015. Governor Bagudu is also a key member of the National Food Security Council, which I chair. I thank the people of Kebbi for their support to the Governor.
For all our farmers, fishing and livestock communities, and agro entrepreneurs, you have truly made me proud. We shall continue to support you with access to credit, adequate inputs, and access to markets and policies that will promote and support your competitiveness.
