How many times does a project get commissioned?

President Muhammadu Buhari Monday in Auyo, Jigawa State, said Nigeria’s agricultural revolution is real and on course.

Speaking at an event to mark the commencement of the rehabilitation and expansion of the 6,000-hectare Hadejia Valley irrigation project, Buhari assured Nigerians that his administration would sustain the positive momentum in the sector by implementing the right policies and providing the needed financial resources for people-oriented projects.

The President, who is in Jigawa State for a two-day working visit, expressed delight that the Federal Government’s economic diversification and inclusive growth programmes were yielding positive results, particularly in key food-producing states. 

The President applauded the World Bank’s assistance to the project, which when completed would increase water availability for all-season farming in the state and beyond.

The President commissioned the 42-kilometre Tasheguwa-Guri Road and the 32-kilometre Abunabo-Kadira-Guri road constructed by the State government to facilitate easier movement and evacuation of farm produce.

Buhari also commissioned the 250,000 solar-powered water supply scheme for Dutse and its environs.
