The Kano State Government has handed over four new pick-up vans and 210 motorcycles to the SASAKAWA AFRICA/Kano AgroPastoral Development Project (KSADP) and Kano Agricultural & Rural Development Authority (KNARDA).
According to the state government, the vehicles were procured to ensure smooth service delivery by the agencies’ agricultural extension workers across the state.
SASAKAWA secured three vehicles and 110 motorcycles, while KNARDA received a pick-up van and 100 motorcycles.
State Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, who inaugurated the vehicles at KNARDA headquarters in Kano said that the move is the light of the government’s desire to boost food security and economic progress.
He, however, expressed optimism that the vehicles would be judiciously utilised to ensure that agricultural activities are upscaled.
“We have enlisted the support of the Islamic Development Bank so that we can develop our agro-pastoral systems and mitigate conflict.
“We, therefore, want to thank SASAKAWA for joining hands with us to achieve these goals,” Ganduje said.
KSADP, an Islamic Development Bank-funded project, with the support of the Life and Livelihoods Fund, was conceived to contribute to poverty reduction and to strengthen food and nutrition security of the vulnerable population in Kano.
Lauding the government for its contribution, Managing Director, KNARDA, Alh. Ibrahim Sulaiman Dan’Isle also praised the technical cooperation with KSADP as a step in the right direction, as the state moves to rejuvenate its economy.
