    Farmers want Yobe Govt to focus on Sesame seeds, wheat production

    Farmers in Yobe have urged the state government to adopt a state policy on Seseame seeds and wheat production to promote economic development and recovery.

    Some of the farmers made the appeal in separate interviews with Nigerian News Agency on Monday in Damaturu.

    They said the two crops are economically viable and suitable for cultivation in the arid climatic condition of the state.

    Alhaji Modu Kime, an irrigation farmer described Sesame seeds and wheat as economic crops with high demand for production of variety of the commodities, locally and internationally.

    “Both seeds and cereal are in high demand for production of confectionaries, flour and others.

    “Gov. Mai Mala Buni’s commitment to revitalise agriculture from subsistence farming to commercial agriculture should concentrate on Sesame seed, wheat and rice production,” he said.

    Alhaji Abubakar Usman, another farmer, said “as a leading state in Sesame seeds and wheat production, Yobe farmers require little support from the state government to actualise the state’s programme on agriculture.

    Malam Hamisu Babangida, an irrigation farmer in Bayamari, said “the vast wetland between Bayamari and Yunusari can be adequately put to use to improve the economic fortunes of the state.

    “Presently, just a few portion of the wetland is put to use by farmers, we have the opportunity to exploit the rich potential abound in the areas.

    “We now produce Sesame seeds during the rainy season and produce rice, wheat, onions, pepper and tomatoes through irrigation” Hamisu said.

    Ali Mustapha, another irrigation farmer said “the wheat producing areas in Borno are still deserted by the communities due to security challenges.

    “Government should support farmers in Yobe to produce more wheat to meet the shortages created by the insurgency.’’

    Kaku Muhammadu said rice farmers on the Gashua wetlands could produce 50 per cent of the rice needs of the state.

    “We just need some support from the federal and state governments to expand our farmlands, procure machineries and processing equipment to compete with imported rice,” he said.

    The farmers unanimously supported the Federal Government’s policy on border closure saying, it had improved agricultural production and protected farmers.

    NAN reports the state governor, who received report from the technical committee on revitalisation of agriculture in the state last week, assured the commitment of his administration to food security and improving the economy of the state through agriculture.

    “We need to have an education system that could unleash our children’s power of imagination and give them the capacity to be who they want to be in their lives.

    “There are so many children in many communities across the state who wake up everyday thinking and dreaming of becoming doctors, and engineers, and nurses, and teachers and architects.

    “After so many attempts in the past, this is our opportunity to give our education sector the highest priority it deserves and provide access to the best possible education for our children,” he said.

    Gov. Buni’s programmes accommodate opposition parties –IPAC chairman

    Alhaji Umar Kukuri, Yobe chairman of Inter Party Advisory Council (IPAC), said the policies, programmes and projects of the Gov. Mai Mala Buni of Yobe accommodated opposition parties.

    Kukuri stated this in an interview with Nigeria News Agency on Wednesday in Damaturu, saying “the manifestos of the opposition political parties are being aptly captured by the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration.”

    He said: “We feel highly accommodated with the implementation of laudable projects and programmes of the state government which are centered on provision of quality education, agricultural and infrastructural development and economic growth.

    “We are in politics to improve the lives of our people and the Buni administration is exactly doing this. We, the opposition, will continue to support the state government to improve the lives of our people,” Kukuri said.

    The chairman assured the people that opposition parties would work towards promoting peace and security, resettlement, rehabilitation and economic growth of the state.

    Kukuri appealed to the governor to consider capable hands even when they did not belong to the ruling APC.

     

    “Members of all political parties who have the capacity and share the same vision and mission with the administration can be considered to contribute their quota to the development of the state,” he said.

    The chairman appealed to the Federal Government, corporate and international organisations and people of the state to support government in its resettlement, rehabilitation and reconstruction programmes.
