Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno State has called on the North-East Development Commission (NEDC) as well as humanitarian and development stakeholders to start shifting the focus on interventions across the North-East from short-term humanitarian interventions to undertaking medium and long-term capital projects and programmes that can hugely impact on addressing the root causes of the Boko Haram insurgency in the geo-political zone.

The governor made the call Thursday while speaking at the validation of the NEDC’s stabilisation and development master plan for the six states in the North East, namely Adamawa, Bauchi, Borno, Gombe, Taraba, and Yobe.

The event held at the International Conference Centre in Abuja was chaired by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr. Boss Mustapha.

The governor congratulated the NEDC for the development of a master plan, describing it as one of the commission’s greatest achievements that clearly gave a pathway for the NEDC to make significant contributions towards the recovery, stability, and repositioning of the North East.

Earlier, in his opening remarks, Chairman of the NEDC, Maj. Gen. Paul Tarfa appreciated the six governors of the North East states for their strong support towards the commission.
