Borno Resettled 447 Displaced Families 

The Borno Government on Sunday resettled 447 households displaced by the insurgency back to newly constructed houses in Dalori village of Konduga Local Government Area.

Speaking on the development, Governor Babagana Zulum said the measure was part of the ongoing reconstruction, rehabilitation and resettlement programme of his administration. 

Zulum said those being resettled were the ones still in unofficial camps in Maiduguri as those in official camps closed about two years ago were already back in their local government areas.

“We want to close the about three unofficial camps still existing in Maiduguri before May 29.

“It is no longer sustainable to keep people in camps providing them with food and non food items,” Zulum said.

He noted that basic facilities like water, clinics and schools had been provided in the resettled communities, while families were provided with a source of livelihood including farm inputs to start their farming activities. 

“We also provided women with skills and things like sewing machines.”

The governor urged citizens of the state to exercise patience over the current hardship occasioned by inflation, adding that he would flag-off the distribution of food and non food items to 100,000 vulnerable households in Maiduguri metropolis and environs by next week.

Zulum said that  same gesture would be extended to vulnerable persons in the southern part of the state comprising Biu, Askira/Uba, Bayo, Shani, Hawul, Chibok and Kwaya-kusar LGAs.
