    The Gombe State Government has stated its commitment to unlocking the full potential of the Wawa-Zange Grazing Reserve to enhance food security, economic prosperity, and livestock productivity by maximizing the benefits of the reserve, which is one of the largest in Nigeria.

    This disclosure was made by the Gombe State Coordinator of the Livestock Productivity and Resilience Support (L-PRES) Project, Professor Umar Bello Abubakar, while receiving a delegation from the Wawa-Zange Community during a courtesy call in his office.

    Professor Abubakar pointed out that Governor Inuwa Yahaya’s administration is determined to address the perennial water scarcity bedeviling the grazing reserve, which has thwarted and stunted the development of livestock production in the area.

    “Water security is a crucial focus of our project. Plans are underway to draw water from the Kupto River and tap into underground water resources. Geological surveys confirm the viability of these options, and industrial boreholes will soon be constructed.”

    According to him, in addition to making the reserve an effective livestock production center, the government is planning to turn it into a resort and a tourist attraction site that will attract tourists from within and outside the country.

    He then urged community leaders to foster peace and collaborate with the government to maintain the tranquility enjoyed in the state, encouraging them to report any suspicious activity that could disrupt peace and progress.

    Malam Adamu Hassan (Sarkin Fulanin Wawa-Zange), speaking on behalf of the Wawa-Zange Community, commended the L-PRES project for its unrelenting efforts towards improving livestock production and overall economic prosperity.

    “We are here to thank the government for the projects completed and those underway in the Wawa-Zange Grazing Reserve undertaken through L-PRES, especially the recent dredging and de-silting of our dams, which ensure a reliable water supply for both humans and animals, benefiting the entire community around the reserve and reviving the ecosystem.”
