Boko Haram: UNDP visit exposed terror group’s false narratives–The Truth Alliance

By: Michael Mike

In a significant blow to Boko Haram’s propaganda machine, a recent visit by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to North East Nigeria has exposed the terror group’s false narrative. The delegation, led by Moncef Kartas, Head of Office and Stabilization at UNDP Nigeria, revealed critical insights that challenge Boko Haram’s claims and shed light on the group’s destructive and anti-Islamic agenda.

According to The Truth Alliance, a non-partisan organisation committed to promoting truth and justice, Boko Haram’s strength is waning, and their ideology is crumbling. The group’s fighters are surrendering and seeking rehabilitation, and their reign of terror extends beyond violence to forced labour and denial of basic rights.

A statement on Monday by The Truth Alliance Spokesperson, Mr. Ahmed Mustapha, noted that the UNDP delegation’s account also highlights the progress made in rebuilding and stabilizing the region.

During the visit, it was made clear that Boko Haram’s strength is waning, with fighters increasingly surrendering and seeking rehabilitation. The Hajj Camp in Borno, where former Boko Haram associates undergo screening and rehabilitation, stands as a testament to this reality. The Truth Alliance emphasised that Boko Haram’s ideology is crumbling, with many insurgents now rejecting their former ways.

The account also revealed  that unlike its claims of fighting for the people, Boko Haram’s reign of terror in reality “extends beyond violence, forcing people into labour without regard for freedom or basic rights”. 
The UNDP also noted that the  rehabilitation efforts for those who suffered under Boko Haram’s tyranny highlight the group’s disregard for human dignity. “The Shehu of Borno’s firsthand account paints a grim picture of the insurgency’s impact on communities, bringing only death and destruction in defiance of the principles of Islam and humanity,” the statement read.

Ngala LGA, once ravaged by Boko Haram, has witnessed a remarkable transformation, with the rebuilding of infrastructure, restoration of state services, and revitalization of trade and economic activity. Similarly, the Logumane community, once proud of its central mosque, has seen over 3,200 internally displaced persons (IDPs) return home, with the reconstruction of housing units, healthcare centers, schools, and police outposts.

To this end, the group emphasised that Boko Haram’s actions do not represent Islam and that their legacy is one of violence, oppression, and destruction. The organisation also called on all Nigerians to reject the terror group’s ideology and support the government’s efforts to combat the insurgency and restore peace and development to the North East.

The Truth Alliance is dedicated to unmasking the truth behind violent and extremist groups, empowering communities to resist tyranny and violence.
Through education, outreach, and collaboration, the group strives to build a safer, more resilient society for all. The ‘Time to Tell the Truth’ campaign aims to expose the manipulation, deception, and brutality of extremist groups

ECOWAS Lightens Gambia Community with Solar Power

By: Michael Mike

A wave of excitement filled the air in Mamud Fana South, Gambia, as residents celebrated a new era of clean and reliable electricity with the commissioning of 77 Solar Home Systems (SHSs).

This life-changing project, implemented by UNIQUE ENERGY, was made possible with the financial support of the ECOWAS Commission through the ECOWAS Special Intervention Fund (ESIF), implemented by ECREEE.

For years, residents of Mamud Fana have struggled with limited access to electricity. This often meant evenings spent in darkness, limited opportunities for education and a struggle to power basic appliances. 

Now, the project lights up Mamud Fana South, bringing solar energy to over 1,000 residents. Each household has been equipped with a solar panel, battery storage, inverter, sockets, and lighting bulbs. This new energy source will allow them to power their homes, use appliances, and potentially develop small businesses.

The installations were commissioned on Saturday, June 15th, 2024, in the presence of Mr. Francis Sempore, ECREEE’s Executive Director, Mr. Emmanuel Correa, Representative of The Gambia’s Ministry of Petroleum and Energy and Mr. Njaga Ceesay, Business Development Manager at UNIQUE ENERGY.

The project demonstrates the positive impact that renewable energy solutions can have on rural communities across West Africa.
