| Leave a comment

As the controversy surrounding the disappearance of 70 trucks of grains allocated to Adamawa State by the presidency rages, stakeholders have called for thorough investigations to unravel the misery behind the disappearance .

The grains was sent to Adamawa State under the Presidential Initiative in the North-East to cushion the hardship caused by the insurgency, but was not distributed to most local government areas affected by the insurgency.

It would be recalled that in June this year ,the office of the Secretary to Government of the Federation (SGF) came to Adamawa State to flag-off the distributions of the grains allocated to the state.

During the ceremony, the representative of SGF at the occasion and Senior Special Assistant to the President on Policy Development and Analysis, Alhaji Ibrahim Hassan Bapetel announced that 40 trucks were on ground for distribution at that time, promising that the remaining would arrive later.
Stakeholders and beneficiaries who spoke to journalists in Yola yesterday frowned at the way the distribution of the commodities was carried out, and regretted that the commodities were distributed to relatives of distributors instead of the generality of the people that the commodities were meant for.
