The chairman, All Farmers Association of Nigeria (AFAN) Kogi state chapter, Alhaji Salihu Adobanyi gave the commendation while speaking with news men shortly after an enlarged meeting between Kogi state Governor and Farmers in the state held in Lokoja.

He said a comprehensive data capturing of farmers will serve as a template for Government in the provision of Agricultural inputs to farmers at subsidized rates and pledges unalloyed support of farmers in the state to Governor Ahmed Usman Ododo-led administration.
