Taraba Governor, Arc. Darius Dickson Ishaku has initiated the provision of some basic palliatives to displaced persons of Chikun and Assa communities under Wukari Local Government Area of the state to aid in agriculture. This will serve as a good motivation for them to go back to their farming businesses and normal lives.
The items distributed are six thousand cassava stems, three thousand Kilogram of beans, one thousand two hundred bags of fertilizers and four wheel mini-tractors .
Representing Governor Ishaku, Engr. Haruna Manu at the hand-over of these items said the symbolic presentation was necessary since the items have long been moved to the resettlement areas. He stated that the Governor has ordered the committees responsible for this to be divided into sub committees such as health, education, housing and security.
Manu said it is now the responsibility of the committee on Agriculture to go ahead with the distribution of the items to the people of Assa and Chikun.
