Boko Haram: FG Assures On Rehabilitation Of North East

The National Emergency Management Authority, NEMA, has said the federal government will make all efforts necessary to rehabilitate scores of people affected by the Boko Haram insurgency in the North east and give a face lift to all the public buildings destroyed since the crisis began in 2009.

Speaking on Sunday during the presentation of relief materials to internally displaced persons, IDPs, in Chibok, Borno state, the North east zonal coordinator of the relief agency, Mohammed Kanar, said the federal government will do all that it takes to put smiles back on the faces of people in the region.

He assured the people that the agency would make provision for boreholes for the people in order to ease the recurrent shortage of potable water.

Kanar, who had earlier led a team on Friday to Kalaa in Hong local government in Adamawa to distribute relief materials to IDPs, said the federal government was only waiting for calm to return to The region before it starts its huge rehabilitation and reconstruction plans.



    On his visit to Chibok, the coordinator was accompanied by experts from the Safe School Initiative who conducted the needs assessment on schools destroyed by terrorists in the town and other affected communities.

    Representatives of the IDPs who responded on behalf of others expressed satisfaction over the gesture by NEMA.

    They said NEMA had been very helpful in improving their wellbeing and providing them relief.

    At Kalaa, the chairman of Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, in the area, Tatami Elkana, and the chairman of the area’s Muslim council, Abubakar Kunliyi, while receiving the relief materials on behalf of the IDPs, expressed their gratitude to President Goodluck Jonathan for providing the items for the community.
