”Fifteen copies of every memorandum should be submitted to the Secretary of the Commission,” he said.

The governor advised the people to eschew violence and promote peace which he described as the fundamental ingredient for sustainable development.

Ishaku said that the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) had since distributed relief materials to the affected communities, adding that more relief materials were being taken to the affected areas.
