The caretaker Chairman of Gubio Local Government Area of Borno State, Alhaji Zanna Modu, has said that the degrading of the activities of Boko Haram insurgents was hastening the reconstruction of about 500 residential houses and public structures destroyed by insurgents in the communities in the LGA.
He also commended the military and the state governor for degrading the activities of insurgents in his communities. Modu stated this yesterday at the foundation laying ceremony for the reconstruction of Gubio town.
His words: ‘’With the liberation of communities in Gubio and its environs, the ongoing reconstruction of 500 residential houses and public structures destroyed by insurgents in the town became necessary to provide returning victims with a decent shelter to enable them to concentrate on their socio- economic activities.”
On the food crisis and malnutrition in Gubio, Modu also flagged off the second Free Food Distribution Programme.
He said: “The problem of food shortage can be attributed to lack of farming activities across the state in the last two years due to the displacement of our people from their communities by insurgents. I urge the people to pray for a bumper harvest, as the council has provided enough fertilizers and pesticide for our teaming farmers for this cropping season”.
