Similarly, the governor also pledged to supply pumping machines to farmers in the state to aid farming activities and encourage an early bumper harvest to complement the federal government food security programme in Nigeria.

In a related development, the governor also inaugurated boards, which include the governing board for the state university Aliero, the boards for the College of Nursing Sciences, the College of Education, Argungu, the preaching board, and the College of Health Sciences, Jega, among other boards and parastatals.
