Nigeria Gets ECOWAS’ $1m Humanitarian Assistance

Nigeria has been given $1m by the Economic Community of West African States to boost food and nutrition needs in Katsina, Zamfara and Borno states.

The fund was given to the United Nations World Food Programme in 2021 as part of an ECOWAS humanitarian assistance to the Nigerian government for victims of violent conflicts in the North-West and North-East.

According to a statement by the WFP on Thursday, the fund was approved for Nigeria from the ECOWAS Regional Stabilisation Fund and the Federal Government had sought the collaboration of the WFP in Nigeria to apply the fund to alleviating food and nutrition needs in Katsina, Zamfara and Borno states.

The programme targets 840 food-insecure households (about 4,196 persons) in Zamfara, Katsina and Borno states with food assistance.
