Gov. Zulum flies N65m to border town with Cameroon, shares cash to 8,000 widows

Borno State Governor, Prof Babagana Zulum, has given N65 million to 8,000 widows and different individuals in critical humanitarian wants in the Nigerian border town of Rann.

Rann, the headquarters of Kala-Balge Local Government Area of Borno State, shares  border with Cameroon.

The city can only be accessed by road through the Republic of Cameroon due to flooded roads from a dam discharge in Central Africa.

The situation has trapped Nigerians in Rann, cutting them from traveling to different parts of Borno and denying them entry to farms which are flooded.

In an announcement on Saturday by the governor’s media aide, Isa Gusau, Zulum needed to fly within the wanted cash into Rann because the town was inaccessible by road by Nigeria and there was no bank by which the money might be transferred.

“The money is to allow the individuals to purchase meals provides from a border village in neighbouring Cameroon.

“Zulum, during Saturday’s trip, the fifth since he grew to become the governor of the troubled state last 12 months, supervised the N65m cash distribution to families of 8,000 widows and some weak residents,” it learn.
