In collaboration with the American University, Yola, the government has agreed that 50% of the funds allocated for the school fees of the kidnapped Chibok girls attending the university will be invested in the community. The funds will be utilized to purchase industrial machines for rice and corn milling, solar pumping machines for irrigation farming, fish grilling machines, sewing machines, and tricycle trucks. These resources are intended to enhance livelihoods and promote socio-economic growth and development in the community.
