Persuade your husbands to embrace farming, Jigawa APC women leader urges women
The Jigawa APC Women Leader, Mrs Binta Farin-Dutse, has enjoined women in the state to encourage their husbands to engage in farming.
Farin-Dutse, who gave the advise while speaking to a group of women on Tuesday in Kiyawa, said farming was one reliable approach to poverty alleviation.
‘‘Advise your husbands to go back to farming in order to reduce the level of unemployment among them.
‘‘If all your husbands will venture into agriculture, I am sure that will boost food security in you communities, the state and the nation in general.
‘‘This will also reduce rural-urban migration among your children,’’ she told the women.
The APC women leader further enjoined the women to pray for President Muhammadu Buhari’s speedy recovery and safe return to the country.
‘‘President Buhari needs our prayers for him to quickly recover, come back and continue to steer the affairs of our country.
‘‘We should also continue to pray for peace and economic prosperity of our great country.
‘‘Our prayers to our leaders will also enable them to continue to give dividends of democracy to the citizenry,’’ she added.
