Speaking at the distribution ceremony on Wednesday in Bauchi, Mr Mohammed Abdul, state Communications officer, FADAMA III Project said that the initiative was tagged, “North East Food Security and Livelihood Emergency Support Project.”

“The distribution of the domestic animals such as sheep, rams, goat and she-goat is ongoing to the beneficiaries across the 20 Local Government Areas with the intervention encompassing every registered IDP in the state.

“Under the Small Ruminants intervention, each head of forty (40) households are given four sheep and a ram or four she-goat and one he-goat, in line with beneficiaries’ interests in breeding,” Abdul said.
