NALDA orders two million plastic sacks from Borno for food packaging

The National Agricultural Land Development Authority (NALDA), has placed an order for production of two million pieces of plastic sacks, mostly for 50kg capacity.

This development came following the recent restoration of Borno Plastic Company by Governor Babagana Umara Zulum.

Prince Paul Ikonne NALDA’s Executive Secretary, announced the partnership, on Tuesday, in Maiduguri when he paid a courtesy call on Governor Zulum.

He said: “We have seen what you (Zulum) are doing, we have seen your factories and I want to inform you that in one of your factories, the sack manufacturing factory, NALDA is placing an order for 2 million sacks for packaging purposes in nationwide food program in which Borno has been selected as one of the pilot states.

Prince Ikonne said in order to promote local content, NALDA would continue to patronise products from Borno’s Plastic Company.

The NALDA Chief Executive informed Governor Zulum that his visit became imperative following President Buhari’s directive with a mandate to reactivate all of NALDA’s farm estates abandoned in different parts of Nigeria.

He, however, announced that Borno and one other state had been chosen as pilot states where 2,040 young people will be engaged into fish farming in Borno alone.

Ikonne explained that the 2,040 young farmers would be trained and equipped on fish processing and packaging in the National Young Farmers Scheme flagged up by the President, in November last year.
