Borno State Governor, Babagana Umara Zulum, on Thursday, supervised the distribution of N125m cash, food and non-food items to over 40,000 families in Konduga Local Government Area as part of the ongoing palliative exercise. 

The distribution which took place in three (3) centres was aimed at reducing the hardship faced by residents as a result of fuel subsidy removal by the federal government in May this year.

The beneficiaries comprised 15,000 male heads of households each of whom received a 25 kg bag of rice and 10 kg bag of beans and 25,000 females received N5,000 cash and a wrapper each.

“In continuation of our efforts to distribute palliatives to vulnerable persons in Borno State, we are here in Konduga. In today’s distribution, about 25,000 vulnerable women, each received a wrapper and N5,000 translating to about N125m. In addition to this, we also distributed a bag of 25kg rice and 10kg beans each to 15,000 male heads of households”, Zulum said.

Zulum began the distribution of fuel subsidy removal palliative in July targeting about 300,000 households across Borno State with priorities on communities most affected by insurgency.

Zulum later scaled up the distribution from 300,000 to 400,000 households.

Over 2,000 vulnerable families have benefited in each of the 27 wards from Zulum’s palliative in Maiduguri Metropolis and Jere Local Government area. However, every head of household living in the rural communities of the LGAs affected by the insurgency will benefit.
