Boko Haram: Adamawa Seeks Divine Intervention, Earmarks N200m For Prayers, Vigilantes

Jibrilla BindowThe Adamawa State Government on Friday announced that it has earmarked N200 million to engage prayer warriors in seeking divine intervention towards ending the state’s lingering security challenges.

Chief of Staff of the state, Alhaji Abdurahman Jimeta, disclosed this in a media chat aired on the Adamawa State Television, which was monitored by the News Agency of Nigeria in Yola.

Jimeta explained that the money was sourced from the state and local governments’ joint account.
“We have earmarked N200 million for prayers to seek for Allah’s intervention in tackling the Boko Haram menace and other insecurity challenges threatening the stability of the state”, Jimeta said.

He said part of that money, which would be spent as security votes, would go into assisting local vigilance teams and security operatives.

On agriculture, he explained that the state government had ordered fertilisers worth over N3billion for the 2015 farming season.

He called for massive support toward the success of government efforts for a peaceful and stable Adamawa, adding that not much could be achieved in an atmosphere of chaos.
