The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has provided some intervention projects to over 50,000 communities in the North East region.
Mr Yoshi Nugochi, the organisation’s country representative disclosed this in Gombi, Adamawa, on Friday, when a Federal Government’s team inspected some intervention projects executed by the UNDP in the state.

Nugochi said that no fewer than ten thousand communities affected by Boko Haram insurgency benefited with various intervention programmes in Adamawa.
He listed some of the intervention projects executed in Adamawa to include distribution of agricultural inputs, small business entrepreneurship, rehabilitation of hospitals and clinics among others.
Responding, Mrs Dibigbo commended the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) intervention programmes in Adamawa.
Dibigbo expressed satisfaction for the intervention projects; adding that the development would go a long way in improving living condition of the communities.
“The purpose of the visit is to see and get first hand information about the collaboration of intervention projects between the Federal Government and UNDP supported programmes.
“We have seen for ourselves, we interacted with the beneficiary communities and we are convinced and satisfied with the projects.” Dibigbo said.
She appealed to Japanese government to inject more additional funds into the Programme to enable it to reach more beneficiaries in the state.
