Following cases of insecurity across the country, especially in the Northern part of Nigeria, the Speaker of the Yobe State House of Assembly, Ahmed Mirwa, has reportedly expressed confidence that a civil rights organisation, the Connected Development, will bring succour to the state by ascertaining the damages caused by 11 years of insurgency.
Mirwa reportedly disclosed, “This project is very important to the people of Yobe State. Everybody knows Yobe State and we are seriously in need of this kind of project in Yobe because of the insurgency that devastated all our areas for about 11 years now. We are suffering; all our schools are burnt; there are no roads and all the major infrastructure in Yobe State is now suffering. So, this project will help us.”
He noted, “We have suffered Boko Haram for 11 years now in Yobe State; but for now, we thank God; everything will come to an end. These people (CODE) will help us investigate the damages that have affected the state.”
