The Speaker, House of Representative, Femi Gbajabiamila has donated drugs worth N60m to Borno State government in furtherance of his promise to partner the State in reliving the plights of Internal Displaced People, IDPs to standard health delivery in the State.
The Speaker had in July this year visited some Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Maiduguri, Borno State.
Gbajabiamila who was represented by his chief of staff, Sanusi Rikiji, presented the drugs to the leader of the Borno state caucus in the House, Mohammed Monguno who received them on behalf of the state government.
He said that the drugs comprised of antibiotics and other essential drugs that would cure infectious diseases.
It would be recalled that the Speaker had equally visited the IDPs in Zamfara and Katsina states where he donated items, including drugs and foodstuff.
Responding, Monguno thanked the Speaker on behalf of the state governor, Babagana Zulum, saying the gesture would go a long way in ameliorating the health challenges of the IDPs. Monguno said Gbajabiamila is the first Speaker of the House who deemed it fit to visit Borno mainly to feel the plight of the IDPs despite the security situation.
Monguno thanked the speaker for being an exemplary leader, assuring home that the Borno government would ensure the judicious use of the drugs in a manner that would affect the lives of all the IDPs positively.
