Also, cassava stems were distributed to some farmers.The cassava stem distribution is implemented by the West Africa Agricultural Productivity Programme (WAAPP) Nigeria, a World Bank-funded programme in collaboration with the University of Agriculture, Makurdi – UAM and facilitated by the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.

The farmers were overjoyed at the intervention and called on the Federal Government to intensify mechanization as they are ready to feed the nation.
