Following recent restoration of Borno Plastic Company by Governor Babagana Umara Zulum, the National Agricultural Land Development Authority NALDA, has placed order for production of two million pieces of plastic sacks, mostly for 50kg capacity.
NALDA’s Executive Secretary, Prince Paul Ikonne announced the partnership on Tuesday in Maiduguri when he led directors to pay courtesy call on Governor Zulum.
Mr. Ikonne also assured that NALDA will continue to patronize products from Borno’s Plastic Company to promote local content.
He also informed Governor Zulum that his visit was on President Buhari’s directive with mandate to reactivate all of NALDA’s farm estates abandoned in different parts of Nigeria.
Ikonne announced that Borno state have been chosen among the pilot states where 2,040 young farmers will be trained and properly equipped on fish processing and packaging under the National Young Farmers Scheme flagged up by the President, back in November last year.
