Gov Fintiri inaugurates 210 household capacity IDP camp in Adamawa

Adamawa Governor  Ahmadu Fintiri  has inaugurated a 210 household capacity Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camp in Alema village in Gombi Local Government Area.

The project was funded by the United States Agency For International Development (USAID) and the Foreign Commonweath and Development Office (FCDO) of the United Kingdom.

Fintiri, who was represented by the Permanent Secretary in the state  Ministry of Reconstruction, Rehabilitation and Resettlement (MRRR), Dr Laori Celine, described the initiative as timely and beneficial to humanity.

He said his administration provided 11 hectares of land for the construction of the camp to resettle the victims of insurgency from Adamawa and the neighbouring Borno State.

” We would continue to provide the necessary resources and support toward sustaining this camp. We would build a clinic, schools and market to better the lot of the displaced persons here,” he said.

The governor lauded the development partners who initiated and funded  the project, saying the measure of progress lied on how to care for the most vulnerable.

“The lives of residents of this settlement would be made meaningful by engaging them in various productive ventures,” he said.

“This is a symbol of solidarity and our shared responsibility towards ensuring that no one was left behind.”

Earlier, Mr Karuppiah Vedharaniyan, an official of the International Organisation For Migration (IOM), explained that the project was implemented by the organisation in collaboration with the Ministry of Reconstruction, Rehabilitation and Resetlement.

He said the Camp had been provided with a green house for agricultural activities and a poultry house to enable the residents to engage in productive ventures.

Mr Marcus Ishaya, Vice Chairman of Gombi Local Government, appreciated initiators of the project, especially those who funded its execution.

He lauded the open door policy of Gov Fintiri’s administration which facilitated execution of the project, calling on settlers in the camp to be peaceful and loyal to the government.

Mr Teman Bitrus, a settler, lauded the gesture, saying the two and three bedroom houses would accommodate him and family.
