AS part of its reconstruction programme in insurgency-affected areas, the Federal Government has constructed about 295 hand pumps and 152 toilets in seven insurgency-affected local government areas of Adamawa.
Dr. Maurice Vonubolki, Coordinator, Adamawa Multi-Sectoral Crisis Recovery Project, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Yola.
Vonubolki said the programme was in collaboration between the Federal Government and World Bank on rehabilitation and reconstruction of infrastructures destroyed by insurgency in the region.
He said the recovery project was being implemented in three states that include: Adamawa, Borno and Yobe.
“Already about 295 hand pumps and 50 solar boreholes have been provided.
“Equally, 152 units of toilets are being constructed across communities in the seven insurgency-affected local government areas in Adamawa,’’ Vonubolki said.
The coordinator said the benefitting areas include: Madagali, Maiha, Mubi-North, Mubi-South, Maiha, Hong and Gombi Local Government Areas.
Vonubolki urged the communities to judiciously use the facilities and protect them from vandals. (NAN)
