Zulum Reiterates Commitment To Ensure More Protection For Farmers

Borno State Government is to collaborate with the military and other security agencies in finding safer ways for farmers in areas facing security challenges to access thier farmland this cropping season.

A statement from Government House, said Governor Babagana Zulum made this known while interacting with some farmers at a military check point in Keleri area along Maiduguri-Mafa road.

“We (our farmers) had access (to their farmlands) in 2020, 2021 and 2022, I see no reason why we can’t have access to our farmlands in 2023 whereas there is a greater improvement in terms of security (in this 2023).

“I will see the military command and insha’Allah, we will discuss and come up with a strong mechanism that would allow farmers to safely cultivate their lands and we will also deal ruthlessly with some of the miscreants harboring around the metropolitan and its environs.

“Farming is very important to all of us, food insecurity is the worst form of insecurity. Therefore, we will not allow food insecurity to surface in this part where we have started to witness the return of peace substantially,” the statement quoted Zulum as saying.

The governor who reiterated his administration commitment to improving security around farmlands through the use of more agro rangers to protect farmers, urged the people to remain resilient and security conscious to exposed criminals.

He also urged for full support to the military citizens to military and other security agencies for maximum result in restoring normalcy across the state.
