Rebellion: FG intends to start a scholarship program in Borno, Adamawa, and Yobe
The Lake Chad Scholarship Program, which would benefit the most insurgent-affected states of Borno, Adamawa, and Yobe, is about to be unveiled by the federal government.

According to a statement released yesterday by the Federal Ministry of Education in Abuja, the action was taken in reaction to the ongoing insurgency and how it was affecting education in the states that were affected.

Vice President Kashim Shettima will be the featured speaker at the program's debut and scholarship portal presentation, which is scheduled for November 14, 2023 in Abuja.

It stated that the Multi-sectoral Crisis Recovery Project Additional Financing (MCRP-AF) would be used to unveil the event.

Meanwhile, Mai Mala Buni, the governor of Yobe State, has asked for help from the international community so that the state government can relocate and provide for the rehabilitation of 1.2 million internally displaced people (IDPs).

He claims that because the majority of the infrastructure was destroyed during the more than ten-year Boko Haram conflict, the state administration requires housing and other facilities.

When Buni requested assistance with resettlement yesterday in Damaturu, he told the World Bank delegation that the international support would hasten the process of resettling the displaced people through livelihood recovery programs. He bemoaned that, after the neighboring state of Borno, his state is the one most affected by terrorism.

For this reason, he asked the bank to work with Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs) on data creation and the execution of strategic policies regarding the resettlement and rehabilitation of internally displaced people. In addition, he gave the MDAs instructions to pinpoint areas where the World Bank should intervene.
