The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Farouq, disclosed this to journalists at the end of the Federal Executive Council meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari, on Wednesday in Abuja.

The statement reads, “One was for the revised estimated total cost for the supply of cattle for Taraba State under the Emergency Agricultural Intervention Programme for states that were affected by conflict and insecurity.

“The approval we got was in the tune of two billion, some millions thereabout,” she said while explaining that the fund was meant for states ravaged by insecurity.
