The state donated 3,701 each of rice, spaghetti and cooking oil from the Northeast development commission. The governor’s visit was in relation to the voluntary return of the IDPs to their ancestral homes due to the return of relative peace across the state, and the resolve of the government to close IDP camps in the state capital.

Similarly, the Governor distributed food items where each head of household received a token of 100 thousand naira, two bags of 20KG rice, one carton of spaghetti and one gallon of cooking oil while the women received N50 naira each.
