Donation gives hope to Kaduna victims

02 June 2014, 07:43

Abuja - The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has distributed building material to families whose homes were destroyed by unknown gunmen during the recent attack in Kaura Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

More than 220 people benefited from the donation aimed at rebuilding their houses.

According to a statement by Manzo Ezekiel, Senior Information Officer of the agency, the material has been distributed in Bondon Model Primary School located in Kaura, where most of the persons displaced by the attack are presently taking refuge.

The Kaduna State Government also presented some cash to the beneficiaries to further assist them in the rebuilding of their homes.

The Director General of the agency, Alhaji Sani Sidi, conveyed the sympathy of the Federal Government to the affected persons.

He said the gesture was in addition to the earlier relief assistance delivered to the communities immediately after the incident to further support them.

He re-assured the commitment of NEMA to partner with the state governments towards efficient and effective disaster management as well as in provision of necessary assistance to communities in distress.

Kaduna State Governor, Alhaji Mukhtar Ramalan Yero, who was represented by his Deputy,  Nuhu Audu Bajoga at the event, thanked the Federal Government through the agency for the prompt assistance to the people that were affected by the attacks from unknown gunmen in March this year.

The Chairman of Kaura Local Government Area, Kumai Badu, appreciated the Federal and Kaduna State Governments for the assistance given to them to rebuild their homes.
