The North East Development Commission (NEDC), has distributed farm inputs to 4,200 farmers in Bauchi State.

The commission distributed the inputs through the LOBITO Group for Asiwaju, to selected farmers across the 20 local government areas of the state.

Mr Sulaiman Aliyu, representative of the Commission stated this at the inauguration of the distribution exercise on Sunday in Azare, Katagum Local Government Area of the state.
