Borno: Gov Zulum orders reactivation of South Chad irrigation scheme 

Borno State Governor, Babagana Umara Zulum, has announced a plan to reactivate the South Chad irrigation scheme aimed at providing a livelihood for the resettled communities.

The Governor said this  on Monday at Wulgo, Ngala Local Government Area.

According to him, “Borno State government will see how to open up and expand the irrigation activities on the shores of Lake Chad. 

“We will resettle new communities and we shall reactivate the South Chad irrigation scheme in order to address food crises in Borno State.”

The South Chad irrigation scheme comprising of communities along the water shores of Lake Chad, including Gamboru, Dambore, Wulgo, Marte, and Kirenuwa, will create employment opportunities and enhance food security for the people in the region.

He said that the reactivation of the irrigation scheme would provide the resettled communities with livelihoods without relying on food aid for survival.

“You can see the quantum of food that is being distributed here, it is not sustainable to continue with such distribution. 

“It is imperative therefore to look for medium and longer-term sustainable solutions that will completely address food crises in the state. 

“The State Ministry of Agriculture has taken a far-reaching decision that will address the food crises. 

“Among them is the reactivation of the irrigation scheme across Borno State,” Zulum said.
