There are gains in recognizing this place and encouraging farmers as they continue with their franchise. I must however point out some challenges I noticed in the area. One major challenge with the place is the access road to the place. From Lafiya through Lamurde
and down to Jen, the road is terrible! As such transporting this produce is always met with a lot of difficulty. If the government can take care of that road, a lot of activities will crop up there which will help revamp the economy. First, if there is access road, filling stations
will be established in those areas going by a lot of traffic that ply that road. Secondly, people will build hotels and rest houses; this will mean employment
to a lot of youths that also means more revenue, sales and services will thrive in the area booming the economy
of the area which in turn will lessen over dependence on the government. So there is the need to do that road from Lafiya down to Jen which is the gateway between Adamawa and Taraba State
. The second thing I would like to highlight is, there is the need to establish a standard rice milling Machine in the area. This also will provide employment and would increase productivity in the area not only that, the farmers will be motivated to do more. Suffice it to say that, if these two things are provided in the area, I believe aside providing food for other states, Adamawa State
will have sufficient food.
