Palliatives: No government can provide food to every resident – Zulum
Babagana Zulum, the Governor of Borno State, has said no government can provide food to its entire communities.
The governor stated this while supervising the distribution of food items to 18,000 heads of households at Damboa Local Government Area on Monday.
Zulum noted that his government has identified and selected the most vulnerable citizens to be the beneficiaries of the subsidy removal palliatives to help cushion the effect of hardship in the state.
“I want you to take note that it is never feasible for any government, be it the federal government, state government, or local government, to provide food items to its entire communities.
“Following this, we have selected the most vulnerable persons across all local governments to help cushion the effect of hardship. Gwoza and Damboa in southern Borno are greatly affected by food shortages, and in the northern part, almost all the LGAs are experiencing food shortages apart from Kaga, Magumeri, and Gubio, while in central Borno, MMC and Jere have less of the hit,” he said.
