Yobe State Governor, Mai Mala Buni has warned the World Bank that delay in releasing of funds for projects will only attract inflation because of the decline in foreign exchange.
The Governor gave the warning in a statement by his Spokesman,
Mamman Mohammed during a meeting with Mr. Shubham Chaudri, World Bank’s Country Director on Tuesday.
The meeting centered on the implementation of the Multi Sectoral Crisis Recovery Projects in the North Eastern states.

The Country Director, Mr. Chaudri assured that he will deliver the worries and concern of the MCRP implementing states to the World Bank headquarters.
Gov. Umara Zulum of Borno State and Governor Umar Fintiri of Adamawa state were represented, calling for improvement on implementation of MCRP projects in the northeast region.
