Obi, who has signalled his intention to appeal the PEPC verdict at the Supreme Court, appealed to all those who share his vision of the possibility of a new Nigeria to remain focused because the dream remains alive and is only deferred. He spoke in a message to the Obidient family and his numerous Supporters at home and in the diaspora on Saturday.

The presidential candidate noted that most of them must be feeling forlorn and disheartened but said this was not the time to despair.

Vice President Kashim Shettima on Saturday said the post-insurgency assessment in the North-East showed that attacks by Boko Haram cost the region $9bn, out of which Borno State, the epicentre of the insurgency, lost $6.8bn.

The initiative by the NEDC was part of its efforts to cushion the effect of the fuel subsidy removal on people in the region.

Shettima, who also declared the eighth North-East Governors’ Forum meeting open at the Borno State Government House, Maiduguri, said the NEDC was fulfilling its mandate of rehabilitating and resettling victims of the insurgency.
