Farming on government land will not be evicted – Niger Gov, Bago

In an effort to guarantee food security in the state, Governor Mohammed Umar Bago of Niger State has guaranteed farmers who are operating on uncultivated public property that they will not be forced to leave their homes.

This was mentioned by Bagi as he was surveying government-owned, undeveloped or deserted land along Mokwa road in Mokwa, Mokwa local government.

All government-owned properties must be utilized for agricultural, he added, because his administration is determined to execute its food security plan.

He claims that farmers who work public land will not be forced to leave their homes but will instead receive financial aid. The cultivation of all government lands is a priority.

“Farmers who work public land will not be forcibly removed from their homes. To illustrate the point, the government will set aside ten hectares of land for farmers who work just one acre.

According to Bago, the governor has pledged that the government will supply free fertilizers and seedlings in an effort to promote sustainable agriculture.
