Governor Babagana Zulum, on Monday, gave out N24 million to 1,200 indigent persons in the former headquarters of the Boko Haram caliphate.
A statement by the Governor’s spokesman, Malam Isa Gusau, said his principal used the whole of Monday for humanitarian activities in Ngoshe, Warabe, and Pulka, all in Gwoza Local Government Area of Southern Borno.
The statement said the governor at Ngoshe supervised the distribution of food items and N24 million in cash to 1,200 vulnerable people who returned from Pulka and Maiduguri.
Zulum was quoted as saying the distribution was to continually support resettled communities before the rainy season during which they are expected to undertake agricultural activities.
The statement said, “The Governor also used the opportunity to assess basic amenities, after which he ordered the State Universal Basic Education Board to immediately provide furniture and ensure Ngoshe Central Primary School is reopened in two weeks. The school project is at 95 per cent completion.”
The Governor was also at Warabe in Gwoza LGA where he inspected 350 houses being built for residents whose houses were destroyed by insurgents.
