Federal government concludes plans to discontinue free distribution of relief materials to IDPs

Federal government says that it has concluded plans to discontinue free distribution of relief materials to an estimated 2.4 million Internally Displaced Persons in rehabilitation camps across the country.

This was disclosed by the Federal Commissioner of National Commission for Refugees, Migrants and Internally Displaced Persons (NCFRMI), Senator Basheer Mohammed, after close-door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja. 

He said from the first quarter of 2020, state governments would assist the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development in reintegrating the IDPs to their original settlements. 

Senator Mohammed said the strategy for the reintegration of the IDPs would be to provide care, maintenance and durable solutions to the needs of the displaced, most of whom were forced out of their original communities by insurgency.
