The National Emergency Management Agency NEMA says it has since delivered no less than 200 trucks of food items to various camps for Internally Displaced Persons’ located in the Northeastern part of Nigeria.
The delivery was kick-started in early June this year to ease the pains of hunger inflicted by insurgency in the region.
Director General, National Emergency Management Agency, Mustapha Maihaja disclosed this during an inspection tour to Kano State.
He says the visit is to assess the level of commitment the contractors are putting in place to ensure the distribution is successful.
Maihaja added that the diversion of food items by brigands had since been dealt with by the Federal Government.
He assured residents of the Northeast that the food items would be delivered without any hitch.
