Nasarawa state governor, Umaru Al-Makura, has disclosed the intention of his government to commence the rebuilding of communities affected by various forms of attacks in the state.
Al-Makura told newsmen on Friday, in Lafia that peace was gradually returning to most of the affected communities.
“We would soon embark on the rehabilitation and reconstruction of some of the houses destroyed and provide security bases among clusters of community settlements to assuage the fear of insecurity,” he said.
“We are really concerned about the people still in IDP camps because there is no amount of relief material you can offer in the camp that is equitable with their abode.”
“So, we are working tirelessly with the security agencies to ensure that all those in IDP camps return to their homes.
“We must be sure that when they go back, there would be no relapse of security.
“We are trying so hard to erase the fear of the unknown from the psyche of the people given the efforts by the security forces.
The governor also restated government’s commitment to continue to support the displaced persons, pending when they would be able to return to their homes.
