Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State, has charged international bodies to check the bureaucratic bottlenecks in their organisations retarding speedy support to communities faced with humanitarian disasters.
The team led by Taimur Samad, Operations Manager and Acting Country Director, said the World Bank is willing to support the Yobe State Government to actualize its reconstruction, rehabilitation and recovery processes to improve the lives of the people.
The governor gave the charge on Monday when he granted an audience to officials of the World Bank and the Multi-Sectoral Crisis Recovery Project.
“The delay involved slows down the speed of reaching out to provide support to the affected communities, this should be considered to achieve maximum results,” he observed.
“We are targeting food crops and sesame seed production and government is determined to provide the required input to make agriculture in Yobe State attractive, productive and profitable,” Buni emphasised.
