He urged farmers to avoid encroaching into grazing reserves and cattle routes and for the cattle herders to avoid grazing on farm lands prior to harvest and evacuation of farm produce.

“Our administration will not tolerate violent conflicts and lawlessness of any kind, Gombe State has enjoyed relative peace and stability and our administration is determined to maintain and improve on that

“That’s why we created the ministry of internal security and ethical orientation through community-driven approaches”

“We shall continue our efforts towards proactively identifying potential areas of conflict and preventing and also managing them across our State.

Governor Yahaya  in a move to support the farmers said that fertilizer will be sold for 5000 naira instead of 20000 naira market price.

“Timely distribution of affordable fertilizer is among our key campaign promises and despite the challenges posed by the covid-19 pandemic, we have been able to deliver affordable and high-quality fertilizer to our farmers in good time”he said.
