Nakpanduri Chief, Naba David Kansok
The Paramount Chief of Nakpanduri, Naba David Kansok, has commended government for the Planting for Food and Jobs (PFJ) initiative in the district.
According to the paramount chief, there are over 10 fertilizer dealers in the Nakpanduri town alone, and farmers in the area used to ‘cry’ for fertilizer during the farming season.
“This year, fertilizer is not a problem for farmers at Nakpanduri, and the government is doing very well as far as the Planting for Food and Jobs initiative is concerned,” he said.
He noted that the prices of fertilizer had been subsidized which, he said, would reduce the expenditure of farmers in the area.
Naba Kansok, however, appealed to government to assist farmers with inputs and tractor services to enable them to expand their farms and production.
