Mr. Eugene Yenlong, NEMA North Central Zonal Manager, called for the collaboration on Thursday, January 24, 2019 when he paid a familiarisation visit to the NAN office in Jos, Plateau State.

He described the proposed partnership as a purveyor of news that would help in disseminating information regarding disaster control and management within the zone.

Yelong said it would also help achieve his agency’s objective of reducing to the barest minimum, effects of certain types of disaster.

In his remarks, Mr. Ephraims Sheyin, the Zonal Manager of NAN in Jos, gave the assurance of NAN’s continuous support in partnering with NEMA.
