Borno declares one-day fast over economic hardship, insecurity



Babagana Zulum, governor of Borno, has urged citizens of the state to fast and offer special prayers on Monday for divine intervention over the current economic hardship and insecurity in the state.

Zulum, in a broadcast on Friday, urged everyone to pray for peace, prosperity and the development of the state while observing the fast.

"I am deeply troubled by the recent hardships faced by our citizens, particularly the high cost of food items," Zulum said.

"I understand the burden that this places on families and individuals, and I want to assure you that we are taking decisive steps to alleviate this issue.

"Our government is focusing on reviving agriculture in the state, intending to increase food production and reduce our reliance on food palliative.

"We are investing in modern farming techniques, providing support to local farmers, and creating incentives for agricultural innovation.

"By doing so, we hope to not only lower the cost of food items but also to create sustainable livelihoods for our people.

"As people of faith and from our previous experience, I implore his eminence, the Shehu of Borno, the Chief Imam, Imams, and the Christian brothers and the citizens of Borno State to observe a one-day voluntary fast on Monday the 19th of February 2024."
