Gov. Mohammed Bindow of Adamawa, on Tuesday, said that the administration would provide more loans to farmers to boost food production in the state.
Bindow made this disclosure at the distribution of 9,421 tonnes of fertiliser and water pumps by the Ministry of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs in collaboration with ALGON in Yola South Local Government Area.
