The Jigawa government has released N2.627million for the rehabilitation and repairs of 10 windmills across the state.
Alhaji Rabiu Miko, the Executive Secretary of Jigawa Farmers/Herdsmen Board, made this known to newsmen in his office in Dutse.
Miko said that the money would be spent on windmills selected from six local government areas of the state.
He said that the 10 wind mills selected for repairs are located in Maigatari, Gumel, Garki, Dutse, Sule Tankarkar and Babura local government areas.
