The Speaker of the House of Representatives has assured that Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) will continue to receive FG’s attention until the war against the Boko Haram insurgents is completely over.
Hon. Yakubu Dogara gave the assurance on Thursday shortly after donating relief materials to the victims of the insurgency at the IDP camps in Wassa on the outskirt of Abuja.
He said that the recent appointments of people from the region by the Federal Government to head agencies responsible for the security of the region was a deliberate effort to curb the menace.
Hon Dogara also thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for appointing some of the service chiefs from the region, restating that the issues of the IDPs would always be in the front burner.
In company of the Speaker, the Chairman of House Committee on IDPs, Rep. Muhammed Zorro and another legislator, Rep. Agbonayinman Johnson, also appealed to the government to continue to provide for their welfare.
