Anybody Selling Fertiliser Above N5000 Will Be Sent To Jail - FG

The Federal Government made this known through it's Chairman, Presidential Task Force on Fertilizer Initiative, also Jigawa State Governor, Alhaji Muhammad Badaru while briefing newsmen on Presidential Fertilizer Initiative (PFI) efforts to make fertilizer available and affordable to farmers.

According to him, the Federal Government had learnt of attempts by some individuals to sabotage government’s efforts to make fertilizer available and affordable to Nigerian farmers.

He said;

We learned that some individuals are selling fertilizer at N5,500 per bag which is above the government approved price.

We have whistleblower numbers on each bag of the fertilizer, therefore, farmers can directly call and report anybody selling the fertilizer above N5000.
