Lt.-Gen Theophilus Yakubu Danjuma (rtd.) will head a committee to rehabilitate infrastructure and resettle Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the North-East sub-region which would soon be formally inaugurated by President Muhammadu Buhari.
A press statement, released late yesterday, by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, said the president spoke at the State House, Abuja, in response to a goodwill message delivered to him by a group, Women In Politics Forum, WIPF.
President Buhari announced that all forms of assistance and aid from any part of the world will be channeled through the committee when it is inaugurated.
According to him, he has compiled a list of damaged infrastructure, including schools and bridges and handed it to the leaders of the G7 and the United States.
“I didn’t ask for a Kobo (in cash). It is up to them to choose what they will undertake. Already, some of them have sent teams to verify our assertions,” the president said.
The committee will also include Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote.
