Zulum set to reopen abandoned farms in Borno


By Henry Okonkwo


Borno State governor, Babagana Zulum, has met with security operatives to begin modalities for reopening of farmlands along Mulai and Dalwa communities so that residents can go back to restart their lives and sources of income.


Zulum’s move was in compliance with Thursday’s directive to the Nigerian military and other security agencies by President Muhammadu Buhari to work with Borno State Government to come up with modalities that would allow people to have access to their farmlands.


To ensure implementation, Zulum on Sunday drove to Dalwa in Konduga and later moved to Ngwom in Mafa Local Government Area.

The governor also assessed farmlands and interacted with the security operatives ahead of the resumption of farming activities.


He said, “We have to develop resilience. We cannot sit down without a means of livelihood. I will also establish a personal farmland along this axis which I will visit on work-free days.”


Zulum while addressing thousands of residents of Molai along Maiduguri–Damboa Highway, called on farmers to resume agricultural activities.
