“We are soliciting for the support from the North East Development Commission to address these huge challenges,” Zulum appealed.

The Managing Director of NEDC, Mohammed Akali, said the essence of having diverse stakeholders was to harness their individual and collective inputs to enrich the North East Stabilisation and Development Master Plan.

He charged stakeholders at the meeting to identify better ways of implementing the plan including funding windows.
