The Federal Government has urged Nigerians to report anybody found selling fertilizer above the 5000 Government approved price.
Chairman, Presidential Task Force on Fertilizer Initiative, also Jigawa State Governor, Alhaji Muhammad Badaru disclosed this while briefing newsmen on Presidential Fertilizer Initiative (PFI) efforts to make fertilizer available and affordable to farmers.
DAILY POST had reported that the Federal Government had reduced the cost of bag of fertilizer from N5,500 to N5000 to support farmers and subdue the effect of COVID-19 pandemic.
But the chairman said the Federal Government had learnt of attempts by some individuals to sabotage government’s efforts to make fertilizer available and affordable to Nigerian farmers.
“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,” Badaru said.
He, however, warned that jail terms await anybody arrested for the above reason.
