The displaced people in Adamawa can now express hope in getting their lives back as the United Nation has come to their rescue.
The United Nation’s High Commission for refugees in Africa on Sunday said arrangements had been concluded to construct 500 housing units for the aged, physically challenged, orphans and the very sick persons who were displaced by Boko Haram insurgents in Adamawa State.
The leader of the High Commissioner for Refugees, Mr. Cesar Tshilombo, dropped the hint while briefing the Deputy Governor of the state, Mr. Martins Babale, on the modality adopted by the body to share the houses after completion.
According to him, the United Nation High Commission for Refugees could not shoulder responsibilities to build all destroyed houses by Boko Haram insurgents alone. This, he said, was why the UN agency resorted to foot the bill of just 500 houses.
Tshilombo, however, declared that each bungalow would cost about $2,000.

Earlier, the Deputy Governor, who received the delegation, had said that the sharing of the houses would not be politicised because stakeholders of all the communities affected would be involved in the process.
Babale, therefore, proposed that IDPs ’ camps should be built outside the state capital and then suggested that such camps should be built at Toungo Local Government in South senatorial district of the state.
