Buni Grants N5 to Two Yobe Students for Inventing Farm Tools

Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe has presented N5 million cheque to two students, Abdulhamid Maigari and Abubakar Mohammed, who fabricated locally harrowing and ploughing machines.

Presenting the cheque to them at a brief ceremony in Damaturu, Mr Buni said the largesse was meant to motivate the young students.

He further hoped that the gesture would help to encourage local invention among the people of the state.

The governor said that agriculture remained the major preoccupation of the Yobe people.

“This administration will, therefore, continue to give the sector the priority attention it deserves.

“We shall also be in tune with the Federal Government’s policy on agriculture as one of the most important sectors of the nation’s economy,” he said.

Responding on their behalf, Mr Maigari thanked the governor for the donation.

He promised that they would use the money to upgrade the machines.
