Gov Zulum Shares N275m To 90,000 Households In Monguno

Gov. Babagana Zulum of Borno has shared N275 million, foodstuff and clothes to 90,000 households affected by the insurgency.

A statement by the Senior Adviser to the Governor on Communications and Strategy,  Mallam Isa Gusau said the such gesture of intervention sustain by Zulum in the last three years, is part of multi-faced efforts to increase the resilience of communities affected by Boko Haram attacks, supporting them with livelihoods as they gradually transit into farming, micro, small, and medium scale businesses in order to eventually cater for themselves.

“The cash support has also been an effective tool in fighting Boko Haram’s ability to recruit spies from extremely poor and vulnerable communities, by offering some residents as low as N5,000 as financial incentives.

“Zulum, alongside the Chief Whip of the House of Representatives, Barr. Mohammed Tahir Monguno travelled by road from Maiduguri on Thursday, passed the night in Mafa, his hometown, and arrived Monguno on Friday morning to commence humanitarian activities.

“Monguno has been host to internally displaced persons  from about five Local Government Areas in the fringes of the Lake Chad, as well as refugees who returned from Niger Republic after fleeing from Boko Haram’s attacks between 2013 and 2014”, Gusau said.

He said that after interacting with the IDPs and returned refugees in Monguno, the Governor on Friday, supervised distribution of wrapper, sugar, and N5,000 each to 55,000 women, making a total of N275 million.

Gov. Zulum traveled to Monguno in company of Government officials undertaking construction of over 1,000 houses in Monguno, rebuilding of existing homes, healthcare and water facilities, schools and markets.

Among the Government officials were the State’s Commissioner for Reconstruction, Rehabilitation and Resettlement, Engr. Mustapha Gubio, Commissioners of Justice, Barr. Kaka Shehu Lawan, Agriculture, Engr Bukar Talba, and other relevant stakeholders.
