The Borno Government has resettled 447 households displaced by the insurgency to newly constructed houses in Dalori village of Konduga Local Government Area.

Speaking at the ceremony, Gov. Babagana Zulum, said the measure was part of the ongoing reconstruction, rehabilitation and resettlement programme of his administration.

“Those resettled today were living in unofficial camps in Maiduguri.

“We want to close not less than three unofficial camps still existing in Maiduguri before May 29.

“It is no longer sustainable to keep people in camps, providing them with food and non-food items,” Zulum said.

He noted that basic facilities like water, clinics and schools had been provided in the resettled communities, while families were provided with sources of livelihood including farm inputs to start farming.

“We also provided women with skills training and gave them sewing machines.”

The governor urged residents of the state to be patient over the current challenges occasioned by inflation, adding that he would inaugurate the distribution of food and non-food items to 100,000 vulnerable households in Maiduguri metropolis and environs soon.

Zulum said that the same gesture would be extended to vulnerable persons in the southern part of the state comprising Biu, Askira/Uba, Bayo, Shani, Hawul, Chibok and Kwaya-kusar LGAs.

Hajiya Fatima Ali, a beneficiary of one of the houses, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that she was excited to be back home after eight years. (NAN)
