CBN Governor, Emefiele Donates Bags of Rice to IDPs in Borno


- Advertisment -

Mr Godwin Emefiele, Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), on Thursday, gave 600 bags of rice to Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Maiduguri.

Emefiele, represented by Alhaji Ishaku Ibrahim, the Maiduguri Branch Comptroller of the CBN, said the token was a personal donation.
The CBN governor said the gesture was designed to cushion the hardship of the vulnerable displaced persons who are in dire need of assistance.
“We, therefore, call on the good people of Nigeria to rally round the Federal Government and insurgency-affected states to restore peace in the North-East.
“Today, my family and I return to this land hitherto renowned as the ‘Home of Peace’ to make a personal donation of an additional 600 bags of rice from my personal savings, to our vulnerable brothers and sisters in the IDPs’ camps.
Gov. Kashim Shettima of Borno thanked the CBN governor for the donation of 30 tons of rice, including the 400 bags of rice donated on May 13.
“We remain liberally indebted for Mr Emefiele’s widows’ might to our displaced persons.
“Branch comptroller of CBN, Malam Ibarhim, we are grateful for your support to IDPs.
Shettima thanked Emefiele for selling the CBN quarters on Damboa road to the state government, assuring that the payments for the residential quarters would be made to CBN this month.” (NAN)
