NEMA begins Distribution of grains to IDPs in Gombe

By Ibrahim Kado
Gombe –  The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) on Wednesday began the distribution of 990 tonnes of grains to over 40,000 Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Gombe State.

NEMA Director General Mustapha Maihaja said the grains were to cushion the effect of hardship faced by the displaced persons in the North East Zone.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the grains, which comprised of maize, soya beans and Guinea corn, were being distributed under the Federal Government Special Food Intervention Programme.

Maihaja, who was represented by Malam Abdulsalam Mohammed, said a household of father, wife and four children was entitled to 25 kg of maize, 12.5 kg of soya beans and 12.5 kg of guinea corn

“Those that are more than six will get 100 kg of the assorted grains. The grains will be given to all IDPs in the 11 local government areas of the state,” he said.

He advised the beneficiaries to make judicious use of the grains.

A cross-section of the beneficiaries told NAN that the grains came at the right time going by the current situation they were in.

The beneficiaries, who appreciated the Federal Government’s gesture, also described the method of distribution as innovative. (NAN)
