Insecurity: Oxfam builds social cohesion in Adamawa’s Michika – Daily Trust

John Makina, the Country Director of Oxfam, has announced significant progress in fostering social cohesion among 16 wards and 80 communities in Michika Local Government Area, which suffered greatly during the insurgency in Adamawa State.

The initiative aims to foster unity and reduce crises in the region.

Addressing journalists at a close-out review and dissemination workshop in Yola, themed “Support to Improving Social Cohesion through Community Development Planning in 16 Wards of Michika LGA,” Makina outlined that the 11-month intervention was conducted in collaboration with CRUDAN, GIZ, and CEPAD.

Makina emphasised that the intervention focused on enhancing participatory engagement and planning among local communities, governmental bodies, and stakeholders. This collaborative effort is anticipated to yield better socio-economic outcomes for the affected communities.

“The aftermath of the insurgency in Michika LGA has led to widespread distrust among residents, internally displaced persons (IDPs), refugees, and returnees, underscoring the urgent need for social cohesion,” he said.
