Bauchi State Government has explained that the state has experienced shortage of fertilizer and is working tirelessly to address the problems.
The Permanent Secretary of the state Ministry of Agriculture, Dr Bala Musa Lukshi stated this recently while answering questions from journalists concerning series of complaints by farmers on the shortage of the commodity.
He said the issue of fertilizer distribution is the backbone to agriculture and had distributed fertilizer to all the 20 local government areas right from the time it was launched.
Dr Lukshi acknowledged the ministry sensed since last Thursday that fertilizer will run short and expressed hope to replenish the commodity in time.
