A member House of Representatives, representing Damboa, Chibok and Gwoza Federal Constituency at the National Assembly, Hon Ahmed Jaha has lauded the efforts of Governor Babagana Zulum ensuring all Internally Displaced Persons(IDPs) in the state returned to their ancestral homes.

Hon. Ahmed Jaha made commendation in an interview with newsmen at the Government House, Maiduguri recently shortly Governor Zulum inaugurated two committees for the relocation of the people of Marte, Ngoshe, Ashigashiya, Kirawa, Warabe and Hambagda communities in Matte and Gwoza area councils.

It could be recalled that recently the Borno state government relocated the people of Auno, Kukawa, Kawuri, Ajiri and Baga communities in it’s efforts to relocate IDPs in the state before the end of year 2020.

“Today is my happiest moment since the insurgency started.as you are all aware that we have been battling with Boko Haram insurgency over a decade now. And my constituency is one of the most hit communities. The decision to relocate our people is a step In the right direction”, Hon Jaha said.

The lawmaker further said ” As rightly pointed out by Governor Zulum who is also the Chief security Officer of the state. We have to take our destiny into our hands. Because if we remain complaisant the insurgents will come and take over Maiduguri and we will witness the displacement of over 5 million people, which will be larger in the sub Africa region. “

” To me the decision to relocate our people to their communities that are considered to be relatively peace is welcome. Right from the time our people were displaced six years ago, only 4 out of 13 Ward of Gwoza local government area are accessible and even at that you cannot go out 2 to 3 kilometers, without security escort. We have take our destiny in our hands, ” he stressed.

He said ” our people are tired of living in the camps, waiting for food and handouts from government and NGOs. We want to go back home and pick up the pieces of our lives. You know .our people doesn’t like begging, they are hard working. I believe when they go back home they will go back to their farms after clearance operation by the military, which will give them the Opportunity to cultivate more land”.

” They are going back home as IDPs in their home. I believed that the state and Federal government will give them food and livelihood materials, which will help them in rebuilding their homes,” he added.

He further stated that the presence of human being will also make it possible for the people to compliment the efforts of the military and CJTF as they know the terrain better.
