The governor of Borno state, Babagana Umara Zulum has released five vehicles and grants to support fish dealers in Mongunu Local Government Area of the state.
Zulum said the support was to promote trade in the council which has been affected by the Boko Haram insurgency.
He made this known during an interactive session with the fish dealers when he visited the LGA.
The governor was in the LGA from Thursday through Saturday to supervise the distribution of food items, clothes, and cash to internally displaced persons and the vulnerable in the area.
During the distribution, no fewer than 90,000 people benefited from the items including the sum of N275 million.
The governor also warned the traders to avoid dealings that lead to supporting Boko Haram and ISWAP Terrorists.
“I warn you not to be involved with any illicit transaction that can jeopardize the security of our people. Anyone caught associating with criminal elements should blame himself."
Economic activities have been affected by the Boko Haram insurgency which had left people displaced across the state.
The state had supplied dried fish in commercial quantities to different parts of the country before the insurgency.
Recall that in 2019, Zulum had approved the disbursement of billions of naira to support businesses as a means to revive the economic activities in the state.
