The meeting focused on fine-tuning the implementation of a joint intervention between the Federal Government and the Borno State Government to fast-track the rebuilding of Bama town and full restoration of civilian authority and means of livelihoods under a pilot programme that is tagged Bama Initiative.

Under the initiative, the Federal Government is to provide 63 percent of funding while the Borno State Government is to contribute 37 percent as counterpart.

The initiative involves the training and setting up of a special joint security team to be deployed to Bama in order to fully restore civil authority while another group of trained security guards are to be deployed to secure farmlands to enable full returning displaced have secured access to the farms and other means of livelihoods. The initiative also involves setting up a green area for the purpose of modern Agriculture amongst other attractive components. (PRNigeria)
