Billionaire Aliko Dangote has announced donated N2 billion to be used for the welfare of the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Borno State.
Dangote disclosed this on Monday, May 8, 2016, while visiting the Dalori and Bakassi IDP camps in Borno State.
He said the donations would be spent on the IDPs so that the State government could provide social amenities to all State residents.
"I am here to see the IDPs by myself. This is my first time to visit IDPs in Borno but I want to assure you that it will not be the last. We shall continue to work with the State government to make sure the IDP camps are hunger free," Dangote said.
He also said that he would feed all the IDPs during the Holy month of ramadan.
"Like I said earlier when I visited the IDP camps, our partnership with Borno State aims to create jobs for our people. Also I assure you that the entire food for IDPs during Ramadan will be given by the Dangote Foundation to assist the State government," he pledged.
