Borno State Governor, Babagana Umara Zulum, has released 80 buses and pick-up vans for free transportation of farmers from their communities to farmlands.


According to Zulum, the 80 vehicles will comprise 50 luxurious buses to be allocated from the fleet of the Borno Express Corporation, a state-owned transport company, while the state 30 pick-up vans will be hired and provided by the state government.


He said the initiative was support the farmers, to cushion the effect of the removal of fuel subsidy which although has a long-term benefit, has increased the cost of transportation.


The governor expressed gratitude to the military for their sacrifices in protecting Borno’s people which is now enabling farming activities across the state.
