Ten communities which were invaded by the  Boko Haram sect  in Adamawa state will soon put the unpleasant experiences behind them as The Energy Commission of Nigeria is set to better their lives.
Deputy Director of the agency, Mr. Okon Ekpenyong who stated this at the commissioning of completed projects in three of the communities in Hong Local Government Area of the state, said the communities were selected in view of the hardship they were subjected to during the occupation of their land by Boko Haram.
“We want to reach out to these communities, meet their immediate needs after the trauma of the horrible experiences they passed through during the terrorists occupation of their lands”, Ekpenyong stated.
According to him, the projects which were being executed with the support of United Nations Development Programme will see to the installation of solar energy and clinical vaccine refrigerators, solar boreholes and solar lamps among others.
In their separate remarks, chief of the benefiting communities Mallam Ja’afaru Biyama and the head of Gaya Sikalmi Health Clinic, Mr. Javan Zakariah expressed their appreciation with the projects stressing that health delivery systems and solar boreholes would make life better for the people.
