Prof. Babagana Zulum, of Borno State on Monday, gave out N24m to 1,200 destitute persons in the former headquarters of the Boko Haram berth.
This contained a statement by the governor’s spokesman, Mallam Isa Gusau.
He said his boss 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 personally supervised the distribution of food items and N24m in cash to 1,200 vulnerable people who returned from Pulka and Maiduguri.
The governor was quoted as saying the distribution was to continually support resettled communities before the rainy season when they are expected to assume 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 to inspect the 350 houses being built for residents whose houses were destroyed by the insurgents.
