    The North-South Power Foundation (NSPF) has donated essential agricultural inputs to host communities in the Shiroro Local Government Area of Niger State. These contributions, aimed at supporting local farmers, were warmly received by representatives of the recipient communities.

    The representative of the company, Malam Aminu Massaga, speaking to newsmen immediately after the handing over of the items at the Palace of the Emir of Minna, Alhaji Umaru Farouq Bahago, noted that the inputs will assist farmers in producing sufficient farm products.

    He emphasized that donations of inputs are part of NSPF’s longstanding tradition to support farmers at the onset of agricultural cycles, addressing both pre-emergence and post-emergence needs in bolstering farm output, especially during the crucial rainy season.

    The donated items included 210 bags of 50 kg of NPK 15-15-15+10.2S golden fertilizers and 70 cartons of one liter of twelve bottles per carton of herbicide slasher gramozone. Additionally, 70 cartons of buta foam atrazine herbicide were provided, underscoring NSPF’s dedication to enhancing agricultural productivity in the region.

    The gesture was met with appreciation from Professor Danladi Hakimi, a former board member of the State Universal Basic Education Board (NSUBEB), who received the items on behalf of the host communities.

    Hakimi also articulated a broader vision for agricultural support, advocating for additional assistance such as tractors, planters, harvesters, and sprayers to facilitate large-scale farming initiatives. He pledged the continued support of host communities, affirming their commitment to fostering a harmonious relationship with the NSPF for mutual benefit.

    “This is a highly commendable gesture. 90 percent of these communities are predominantly farmers; these inputs are expensive, and a lot of farmers cannot afford them. We are happy that NSP listened to our complaints by giving us these items at the right time, and we promised that our people would use them judiciously,” he said.
