Benue villages destroyed by recent herdsmen attacks recently are set to get some respite as President Muhammadu Buhari has approved N10 Billion to rebuild the damaged villages in Benue as well as other states.

Making the disclosure yesterday, Vice President Professor Yemi Osinbajo while on a working visit to Benue state said the Federal Government was committed to ensuring that the people of the state get relieve in order to be able to return back to their normal lives.

“President Buhari has approved a total of N10 billion for rebuilding of villages and communities including farmlands that were attacked in Benue and other affected States.

“The President asked me to make this my priority, so be ready to be seeing me here more often. The government of Nigeria has a duty to protect you, and we will protect you.

“I want you to have hope and confidence and most importantly to also know that we are not doing you a favour by promising to provide you with security, a place to live and school for our children, it is your right as citizens of this country,” he said.
