The Yobe State Government and Qatar Charity Organisation will on Thursday sign a Memorandum of Understanding, MoU, for the construction of charitable projects across the 17 local government areas of the state.
DAILY NIGERIAN learnt that the MoU which will be signed in Abuja is to enable the two bodies to enter into a partnership for the construction and provision of some basic amenities such as mosques, schools, hospitals, boreholes, as well as scholarships for students in the state.
The partnership followed a meeting between Governor Mai Mala Buni and the Executive Director of the organization, Hamdi Elsayed in mid-September in Abuja where the governor was briefed about the charitable services the organisation provides in the country.
