No fewer than 500 farmers have benefited from the agricultural component distributed by the Yobe State Government Sunday in the Jarere Community of the state.
The state government had described the distribution as part of its early recovery response project in the state.
Flagging off the distribution Sunday, Dr Mohammed Goje, Executive Secretary, Yobe State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), disclosed that each of the beneficiaries would go home with a knapsack, sprayer, liquid fertiliser, herbicide, bean seeds, sorghum seeds, hand gloves and facemasks.
Reports disclosed that the 500 beneficiaries were identified by Agricultural Development Programme (ADP) through community-based selection.
It was gathered that the 500 beneficiaries included 400 men farmers and 100 female farmers of the community.
However, the beneficiaries applauded the state government for identifying their community, Jajere, among the benefiting communities.
