The programme led by Hajia Maryam Ali Ndume, the wife of the lawmaker and the driving force behind the Ndume Sustainable Farming initiative, the recent announcement of the additional funding is a proof to the commitment of the lawmaker.

The ten million naira injection is earmarked for various farming activities, including land preparation, leasing, and other essential needs as farmers gear up for the upcoming season.

From its humble beginnings in seven local governments, the initiative has expanded its reach to ensure that no farmer is left behind, reflecting a commitment to inclusivity and equitable distribution of resources.

The amount injected into the Ndume Sustainable Farming initiative signals a promising future for agriculture in southern Borno. With continued support and collaboration, this initiative has the potential to transform the lives of farmers and contribute to the overall prosperity of the zone and the state.
