The Lake Chad Basin is the largest endorheic basin in Africa, it spans four nations including Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Cameroon.

The Governor noted during his assessment that with agricultural activities picking up along the Lake Chad shores, the returning communities hitherto depending on Government support and humanitarian aid would have sources of livelihood.

“We are here to see how we can support large-scale farming, this town was ravaged by the insurgents and people were resettled back about last two or three years. So, in order to provide a means of livelihood to the people we have to exploit the potentials of the Lake Chad, Zulum said.

He added: “Our first objective is to see how we can support the army and the navy to clear the waterways so that movement by boat from Baga to Chad can commence which will enhance trans border trade and agriculture”.

The Governor was accompanied by the member representing Kukawa at the State Assembly, Kirta Maina Ma’aji, MD Chad Basin Development Authority, Engr Abba Garba, the Borno State Commissioner for Local Government and Emirate Affair, Sugun Mai Mele, that of Agriculture, Engr Bawu Musami, MD Borno State Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Agency, Engr Mohammed Musa Aliyu and members of the Borno State Agricultural Transformation Committee.
