Alao commended the military and other security agencies for restoring peace in Borno and their support for the VSF, which helped to sustain its activities in the state.
Also speaking, the Executive Director of VSF, Professor Nana Tanko lauded the Borno State Government for supporting the IDPs.
Tanko said those being evacuated were also empowered in areas of farming, food processing, education, and psychosocial support.
Acting Permanent Secretary, Borno Ministry of Reconstruction, Rehabilitation and Resettlement, Alhaji Mohammed Habib, lauded VSF for its sustained support to the state.
He said the state government had so far resettled about 15 communities leading to the closure of 10 IDPs camps.
Habib said many members of the resettled communities had since picked up their lives.
Similarly, the Deputy Governor of Borno State, Alhaji Umar Kadafur, appreciated VSF for the intervention and assured sustained collaboration with the state government.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that most of the beneficiaries thanked God and all those who made it possible for them to return home.
“After seven years in the camp, I am today going back home, it’s a dream come true, and may we never experience such a crisis again,” Falmata, one of the IDPs said.
