President Bola Ahmed Tinubu-led government is reportedly making plans to provide free petrol/fuel to citizens of Kebbi State in collaboration with the state government.

Kebbi State Governor, Nasiru Idris, disclosed this during the weekend, noting that arrangement has been finalized for the provision of the Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) to farmers during the dry season farming period.

The initiative, he said, is aimed to enhance agricultural productivity in the state.

According to Daily Trust, Governor Idiris noted this during a recent address to All Progressives Congress (APC) supporters in Yauri, a local government headquarters in the state.

The governor highlighted his collaboration with the Minister of Budget and Economic Planning, Senator Abubakar Atiku-Bagudu, in ensuring the efficient distribution of fuel to the farmers.

Idris also said his administration would distribute 12,000 solar-powered water pumps to farmers, noting that it had already distributed 6,000.
