Families displaced by insurgency living in temporary settlements in Borno State have  received 580 units of two-bedroom houses built by the state in Auno, Konduga Local Government Area of the state.

Governor Babagana Umara Zulum, who commissioned the houses, said they were built as part of the government’s drive towards ‘safe and dignified resettlement’ of displaced persons across the state.

He presented letters of allocation to the recipient families, and directed a resettlement committee to work towards moving more displaced families to permanent homes.

The governor said most of the crowded temporary settlements faced many problems like prostitution, drug abuse and exploitation of humanitarian interventions by citizens who relocated to camps in the day time mainly to get food rations meant for those with more severe needs, and returned to their homes at night, leaving the real occupants with less food allocations.

In his welcome remark, Engineer Gubio explained that a total of 4,967 families, called households, were recently resettled in houses allocated to them in Damasak, Auno, Bama, Konduga, Jere, Maiduguri and Marte.

Gubio also said primary school teachers, nurses and security personnel were accorded consideration given their roles in communities.

The commissioner also announced that more resettlement housing projects are being completed at Kaleri, Warabe, Chibok, Ngarnam, Damboa, Marte, Dalori and other locations.
