The Federal Government has released eleven truck loads of relief materials for the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Jigawa State. The IDPs are taking refuge in various local councils in the state. The distribution was flagged off by Mallam Musa Ilallah, the North West Zonal coordinator of National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA).
According to sources the President is deeply concerned about the welfare and living conditions of the IDPs, that was why he sent his Vice President to personally go and access the situation in Maiduguri, Borno State.
''We want to assure Nigerians that the plight of the IDPs will continue to receive attention because their are our brothers and sisters, citizens of our nation. Therefore restoring the dignity and material well being of these citizens is a key objective of President Buhari.
