On my return to Ngala:
I received Ba Mai of Ngala or Mai tadawaye (King of Youth) of Dikwa Emirate Council on Courtesy call to my office and his Wakil, with regard to INGOs operations within Ngala soil and way forward.
I was informed about 100 ladies from 20, 25 working with INGOs in Ngala were now impregnated and HIV positive. In another development, the community leaders that through the District Head of Gamboru is requesting my humble office suspend the INGOs from recruiting these unmarried girls into their operational activities because of the exploitation going on within their various institutions.
I have been my very since my inception into this office to sanitize the system but this time around with regards to the aforementioned allegations I want your sincere advice before I forge into action. ?
