The Melinda and Bill Gates Foundation have given the Borno State government a grant of 1 million Dollars, meant for resettling the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Borno State.

The foundation is aimed at targeting displaced victims of insurgency ready to return to their ancestral homes.
The intervention was released through the Rebuilding and Reconstruction Ministry of the State, constituted for resettling the IDPs.
Governor Kashim Shettima flagged off distribution of food items in Mainok town where locals are already returning in large numbers.
Nearly two million people, dislodged from their home towns, in remote parts of Borno State by insurgency, had found temporary shelter in the capital city and safer havens in nearby states.
The recent military successes and recapture of some of the troubled towns has paved way for locals to return to their home towns.
Residents of Mainok town in Kaga Local Government Area are happy to return home after nearly two years sojourn in makeshift camps.
Governor Kashim Shettima said aside food items farmlands have been procured in the first phase of the intervention, to enable the IDPS continue with their lifestyles.
