EFFECTIVE REPRESENTATION DELIVERED AS HON. DICKSON TARKIGHIR ROUNDS UP TRAINING/EMPOWERMENT PROGRAM

By Mase KENNEDY
After a 3-day training session intended at training farmers from Makurdi/Guma in modern ways of cultivating rice and yam, curtains were drawn with smiles on the faces of participants.
Running from 28th-30th April 2018, the Federal Ministry of Agriculture supported program successfully trained over 200 farmers from the constituency. The program which was held at Sheraton Hotels Makurdi, had in attendance major stakeholders in the agricultural sector who delivered lectures, addresses and tutorials. Practical sessions we're also held in order to help illustrate and aid a more precise training.
The program which came to an end even at the dissatisfaction of the participants who wished it would have continued, had a lot of impact on the participants as could be seen in their level of interaction and attentiveness at every stage of the program.
Hon. Dickson Tarkighir peaked the event on the last day by appreciating the efforts and willingness shown by his constituents to learn new and refined ways of farming in order to help bring home more yield. The permanent secretary of the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, who was represented by Dr. Obute Garba applauded Hon. Dickson and further appreciated the participants stating that they are true ambassadors of the Food Basket of The Nation.
Smiles erupted on the faces of the participants when Hon. Dickson Tarkighir presented certificates to the participants and as well empowered them with improved seedlings, herbicides, inorganic fertilizers and cash to boost their production capacity.
Participants appreciated the gesture by their Federal legislator, stating clearly that, he has been the legislator they had always prayed for. They went further to declare their support for him, in order to enable him deliver more to their constituency.
