“I am expecting a better harvest with my groundnut farm which I intend to harvest next week”, he said.

He added: “I thank the government for providing us with fertilizer at the start of this year’s rainy season. This however was not adequate in terms of our fertilizer demands. I implore on the regime to provide us with the needed fertilizer to maximize our production”.
