He commended the Federal Government for the efforts being made to ameliorate the sufferings of victims of the crisis in the zone.
He also thanked President Buhari for the efforts he is making to develop the Mambilla Hydro Electricity Power. He stressed the need for the nation to give more emphasis to the development of power infrastructure because power is critical to the development of any society.
He urged the commission to assist with the rehabilitation of federal roads in Taraba State. He drew attention to the need to build the road leading to the hydropower project site, noting that at the moment there is no road to the project site.
Chairman of the Commission, Retired General Paul Tarfa, said his team was in Taraba to find ways the commission can assist the state to develop some infrastructure.
The managing director of the commission, Mohammed Alkali, was a member of the delegation.
