Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State has launched cash support of N100, 000 each to 1000 victims of flooding across the state under the Nigeria COVID-19 Action Recovery and Economic Stimulus (NG-CARES) programme.
NG-CARES is a federal government intervention programme being implemented with the support and collaboration of state governments.
“The NG-CARES is indeed another effective instrument that would complement the efforts of the Yobe State government in the implementation of its post-insurgency recovery plan, especially in the areas of employment and income generation as well as self-reliance,” Gov. Buni said.
The governor revealed that his administration has made a cumulative contribution of over N1.8 billion towards the successful implementation of the various platforms of the NG-CARES programme.
