• UN to assist Borno in 1.8m IDPs’ return

The interim Secretary-General of Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF), Alhaji Murtala Aliyu, has lampooned Buhari over his performance and inability to remedy the worsening security situation in Nigeria.

Aliyu spoke in a television interview monitored in Kaduna on the economy under Buhari.

“I don’t want to lay all the blames on the President. There are quite a number of problems all through the leadership. But Buhari has not lived up to his constitutional responsibility to protect the lives of Nigerians against terrorists.”

FOLLOWING last week’s attack by terrorists on Zuru Emirate, Kebbi State Governor, Abubakar Bagudu, has paid condolence visit to the affected communities to sympathise with the bereaved families.

Special Assistant (Media) to the Governor, Yahaya Sarki, stated, yesterday, that the communities include Ragan, Morai, Warkata, Wadaku, Dankade, Yar-Kuka, Gaya, Ayu and Unashi, where two security personnel (two army and a police) were killed.

The governor promised to resettle the affected families, while praying God to grant the departed souls repose and their families the formidable fortitude to bear the losses.
ALSO, the United Nations (UN) has promised to assist the Borno State government return 1.8 million Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in.

The Under Secretary-General and Emergency Relief Coordinator of UN, Martin Griffiths, said the humanitarian community overwhelmed with the people’s dire needs, especially the restoration of their destroyed livelihoods.

Griffiths made the pledge in Maiduguri, yesterday, when a UN delegation visited Governor Babagana Zulum at the Government House.

The Guardian gathered that the delegation was in the state to assess the state of IDPs in camps.

“I’ve the opportunity today, in Bama, to talk to many IDPs and the military at its base,” he said, adding that during the interaction, the people confirmed the strategic importance of the UN’s support for the state government to return IDPs to communities.

“Our partnership for support is something we do out of duty within the Bama case. We do it out of the commitment, with the knowledge that events are improving each year for the people.”

According to him, the support of policies and efforts of the state government will restore peace and prosperity.
