Nigeria: Borno State Governor Distributes Food Items In Kala-Balge

The Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum, led the distribution of food and non food items to 10,000 households in Rann, Headquarters of Kala-Balge, the remotest Local Government Area of the state.

He was flown from Maiduguri to Rann, onboard a military chopper on Sunday, to the LG bordering the Cameroon Republic.

The latest visit is the fourth by Governor who had made three previous similar trips, the first being in June, 2019, few days after coming into office, when he undertook the need assessment of public facilities and subsequently ordered construction works.

He later return in December 2019 to distribute cash to 15,000 widows; and was soon back to Kala-Balge in February this year to distribute N100m cash to 10,000 trapped families.

During the latest visit on Sunday, Zulum supervised the distribution of relief items to mostly women and aged men amongst other vulnerable persons, with about 300 Nigerians taking refuge in the Republic of Cameroon who returned to Rann benefiting from the gesture.

Each of the beneficiaries received a bag of 50kg Maize, two cartons of spaghetti, two bags of 10kg rice and a-3 liters cooking oil, while female beneficiaries got wrappers in addition to food items.

Residents of Rann had since mid last year been trapped without access road to farmlands due to the flood from a dam, this forced them to resort to neighboring Cameroon Republic for their livelihoods.
