According to Goni, NEDC is committed to achieving a secure, healthy, prosperous, and peaceful region by engaging the active population in worthy ventures.

Commenting on the Commission’s efforts toward the deradicalisation of repentant Boko Haram members, especially the youths, the managing director added, “we are working with traditional, religious and political leaders to educate our people so that they can distinguish the difference between radicalism and peaceful co-existence.”

Also speaking, the acting Chairperson, Board of Trustee, North-East Development Commission Education Endowment Fund, said, “The Scheme is aimed at re-invigorating the quality of the education sub-sector in the North-East which like the psycho-social and economic strata of the Region has suffered serious setback as a result of over ten years of Boko Haram insurgency.
