Borno State governor Babagana Umara Zulum has distributed food items to 13,000 households, most of whom were affected by the Boko Haram crisis in Gwoza local government area of the state.
The distribution took place on Sunday at the premises of the Palace of Emir of Gwoza, Shehu Idrissa Timta.
Zulum travelled to Gwoza on Saturday, and paid a surprise visit to the general hospital in the community at midnight, and ordered immediate interventions.
The next day, Zulum supervised the food distribution during which each of 13,000 households received one bag of rice and a bag of maize grain.
The governor, alongside the new director-general of the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), Barkindo Mohammed Saidu, led the distribution process, making sure deserving families benefitted.
