5 years ago

President Goodluck Jonathan has called on intending Christian Pilgrims to pray for a safe return of the abducted Chibok school girls and also for a peaceful and successful conduct of the 2015 elections.

The Senate President, David Mark who was representing the president made this call yesterday at the inauguration of the 2014 Christian Pilgrimage, in Abuja as the first batch of 250 Christian pilgrims were getting ready to leave for Israel, Rome and Greece.

In another news, the Federal Government also announced yesterday that, the Government has used over N1.5 billion on the provision of relief materials to people displaced by activities of insurgents in three Northern states in nigeria.
Muhammed Kanar, the Coordinator, National Emergency Management Agency, North-East Zone, told the News Agency of nigeria that the materials were distributed by the committee inaugurated by President Goodluck Jonathan.


But sadly, despite the ceasefire the Nigerian government announced it reached with the boko haram sect, deadly attacks on remote communities by the group have continued in Borno State.
