This is fundamental to us.

“The most critical element for us to achieve this is security, we shall strengthen the resilience of our people by empowering them especially the Civilians JTF, Vigilantes and local hunters, to open more communities to ensure their security on our farmers. We will ensure that all IDPs return to their homes and all IDP Camps in Maiduguri will be closed at the latest May 2021.
