FG, ECOWAS commission pledge to provide basic amenities in Northeast

The President of ECOWAS Commission, Jean-Claude Kassi Brou, says the commission in collaboration with the Nigerian Government will provide boreholes, rehabilitate damaged schools and health facilities in communities affected by insurgency in the Northeast.

The president, who was represented by Dr Siga Jagne, Commissioner, Social Affairs and Gender, ECOWAS, said this in Abuja at the symposium organised to commemorate the World Humanitarian Day.
