Africa’s Richest man, Aliko Dangote, has provided 200 housing units for Internally Displaced Persons, particularly the widows, in Borno state. He commissioned the housing units yesterday June 18th.
At the comissioning, Dangote said his foundation has so far spent over N7 billion in providing humanitarian assistance to those displaced by Boko Haram in the Northeast, and would provide N2 billion more.
“You may recall in the last two years when I first paid a visit to the IDPs camp, I made a pledge of N2 billion on behalf of Dangote foundation. The gesture was designed to support government to key into the reconstruction of houses that were destroyed and vandalised by Boko Haram. The 200 housing units would provide accommodation to the IDPs in Borno. Each house is self contained and is built to house a family”Dangote said
