Farmers have been encouraged to bring in positive attitudes into the Triming project supported by World Bank.
The plea was made by the communication specialist of the project Engineer Anthea O. Udo during the sensitization seminar for stakeholders in Triming project in Sokoto.
She said that the primary objective of the project is to improve irrigation system and agricultural delivery in Sokoto state.
She urged the government to bring in moral and financial support into the program.
Another speaker at the event Engineer Elijah said that the Resettlement Action Plan for Bakolori irrigation scheme is the soft aspect of the project and the social safeguard to farmers.
He said, RAP is a grievance redress mechanism developed by Water Users Association which is a platform for stakeholders to air their grievances.
He laid emphasis on the payment of the women farmers, where he said that their entitlement will be handed over to them directly.
Elijah therefore called on the stakeholders to keep away negative intentions aside because any complain made by them will slow down the project.
