In a video shared by UNHCR, Tufce said he knows he’s equal to the task. He also promised to raise awareness for those forced to flee from their homes.
“My desire to do something led me to the LuquLuqutribe. The Moment I got involved in the luquLuqutribe, I just knew that this was the right direction for Africa,”2Baba said in the video.
“The LuQuLuQu tribe is borderless. It reaches all corners of the whole continent,” he said.
He also shared shared his experience on one of his visit to an IDP camp in Borno, noting that the experience is quite touching.
