Borno Gov Calls For Probe Of Chibok School Rehabilitation Fund


Governor of Borno State, Alhaji Kashim Shettima, on Tuesday called for detailed investigation into what happened to the N500 million reportedly released for the reconstruction of Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok.

According to reports, the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan released the money to the community shortly after the abduction of Chibok school girls.

The former Minister of Finance, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, had flown to Chibok to inaugurate the N500 million rebuilding project under the Safe School Initiative programme.

Two years on, the project is yet to be completed, while students of the school remain at home.

Shettima told residents of Chibok that the state government would pressurize the Federal Government to uncover those who have diverted the money.
