“Establish North East Development Commission – Group Tells Buhari

A non governmental organization Adamawa Youth initiative has made a
plea for the establishment of a North East Development Commission

This if done will enable for the rapid development of the North East
region which has been ravaged by the Boko Haram insurgents.

At a press conference at the N.U.J Press centre Yola on Monday, leader
of the group Hamisu Idris Medugu disclosed that.

According to Hamisu, the lives and aspirants of the peoples have been
broken and lost.

“The North East region is now populated by mostly orphans, widows, the
old and most vulnerable hence the need for a swift provision of basic
social safety measures”, they said.

The group disclosed that other measures include reconstruction and
re-integration to make them get back to society.

“Like other citizens including those in the United States of America,
there was the strong need to create the commission for rapid
development of Northern Nigeria especially the North East region
similar to what was done for the Niger Delta region”, the group

They urged the government to as a matter of priority immediately
reconstruct all damaged bridges, places of worship, schools, hospitals
and houses in order to reassure the people of the region that there
was indeed change in the country.

    and all these pressure even before Buhari is sworn into office?
    These northern people may want all oil revenues in the next four years to be deployed to building the north, but northern youths protesting to oust Jonathan govt did all the destruction in the form of Boko Haram Fingers crossed for now.

    How much Marshal commission was set up to rebuild Biafra areas when the war ended? Nothing.
