Boko Haram: Nigeria reaffirms $6.7bn Northeast reconstruction, rehabilitation, resettlement plan



The Federal Government says it has developed a 6.7-billion-dollar robust plan of action for the reconstruction, rehabilitation and resettlement of Northeast devastated by Boko Haram activities. Nigeria’s Ambassador/Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Prof. Tijjani Bande, said this at a side event tagged ‘Strengthening the Humanitarian and Development Partnership in the Lake Chad Region’, at the UN headquarters.

The Nigerian envoy said that the comprehensive socio-economic plan, known as ‘Buhari Plan’ is meant to advance development in the country. Bande said Nigeria was spearheading the event based on the need to promote across board collaboration and cooperation among countries of the Lake Chad region, the donors and a whole range of humanitarian and development partners.

The event, sponsored by Nigeria, Cameroon, Niger, Chad, UN Development Programme and UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, also featured presentations by UN Humanitarian Coordinators for the four countries.
