The Adamawa Government has acquired 140 tractors and distributed them to local governments and the Ministry of Agriculture to boost agricultural mechanisation in the state.

Governor Mohammed Bindow made the development known in Yola, the state capital on Thursday when he received members of Tractor Owners and Operators Association of Nigeria (TOOAN) on a visit to him.

Mr. Bindow said that previous administrations in the state did not give priority to agriculture, pointing out that few tractors that his administration inherited were bought by the defunct Gongola Government.

He said that his administration would continue to give priority to agriculture in order to attain food security.

He said that the inputs in agriculture by his administration had yielded results within two years of the administration.Agricultural Mechanisation

He sought collaboration with TOOAN in achieving agricultural mechanisation which would engender mass food production in the state.
