Yobe State’s commitment to empowering its local communities was on display as the Yobe State Emergency Management Agency (YOSEMA), in partnership with the Agricultural Development Programme (ADP), launched the distribution of farming equipment in Potiskum and Nangere local governments.

During the ceremonial launch, Dr. Mohammed Goje, the Executive Secretary of SEMA, emphasized the significance of providing farming machinery to enhance agricultural productivity and foster economic growth.

He stated, “The provision of these machines aims to improve agricultural productivity, create income opportunities, and contribute to the overall development of the communities.”

The initiative has proved beneficial to over 400 recipients, who have received ten threshing machines and eight oil extraction machines.
