Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs in Benue Taraba, Plateau and Nasarawa states have been included as beneficiaries in the sum of N10 billion voted for the relocation and resettlement of IDPs, returning to Borno, Adamawa and Yobe states.
The Senate who, yesterday, mandated its Committee on Appropriation to allocate the said sum under service also urged the National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, and the Refugees Commission to make special arrangement for repatriation and resettlement of Nigerian refugees in Cameroon, Niger and Chad.
This action was sequel to a motion, tagged: “Interim financial and material support/assistance to Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, returnees in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe states”, presented for consideration during plenary by the Senate Leader, Ali Ndume, APC, Borno South and eight others from Borno, Adamawa and Yobe states.
