In response to the post-Boko Haram conflict, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has just made a donation to the administrations of the Far North region.
The security crisis caused by the terrorist sect dubbed Boko Haram in the Far North has caused development in the region to stall. In recent years, a momentum has been set in motion to restore the region to its former glory. With this in mind, the United Nations Development Programme has decided to join the stabilisation and development programme for the Far North region.
For that purpose, the British High Commissioner, Barry Lowen, today presented a number of vehicles in Maroua. The official handover ceremony took place this morning in Maroua in the presence of Midjiyawa Bakari, Governor of the region. Vehicles and motorcycles are among the equipment.
The beneficiaries are the Court of Appeal of the region, the Fotokol police station and the district delegation of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development in Kolofata. According to the British High Commissioner, the donation is intended to enable these authorities to continue their work in stabilising the post-Boko Haram situation and, above all, to promote local development.
