Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mr. Godwin Emefiele, has joined other philanthropies in the country by donating 400 bags of locally produced rice and some relief materials to the internally displaced persons, IDPs, in Maiduguri, Borno State.

The CBN boss, who was represented by the Controller, CBN Borno Branch, Alhaji Isyaku Ibrahim, while presenting the food items on behalf of the Emefiele family, said that, the relief materials were to compliment the efforts of both the Federal and state governments in bringing succour to those displaced by insurgency.

The relief materials, according to the CBN Governor, were gifts received by the family from friends and well wishers during their mother's recently which he promised to donate to the IDPs to alleviate their suffering.

Mr. Emefiele also commended the efforts of the military, and the State Governor, Kashim Shettima, in bringing peace to Borno State and the North East sub-region of the country. The state, according to Emefiele, looks set to revive its economy ruined by the insurgence. The CBN governor noted that with the restoration of peace in the North East, Borno State is set to benefits from some of the CBN development initiatives to move the state forward.

The Borno State Governor while responding, thanked Mr. Godwin Emefiele and his family, for their kind support and good gesture to the people of the state, and urged other privileged Nigerians and corporate bodies to emulate the CBN boss to assist the government in overcoming the challenges of resettling those displaced by the insurgence.

It would be recalled that many dignitaries from several works of life, particularly the Presidency, State Governors, legislators, traditional rulers, technocrats, captains of industry and clergies joined the Emefiele family in Agbor, Delta state to bid farewell to the matriarch, Mrs Alice Emefiele on April 2 this year.

President Muhammadu Buhari was represented by the Secretary to the Federal Government, Mr Babachir David Lawan at the occasion.
