Femi Gbajabiamila, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, has spoken on the Federal Government plan to curb the challenges facing the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Nigeria.
He revealed the plan on Friday in an outreach programme at the Durumi IDP Camp in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
According to a statement by Lanre Lasisi, the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to Mr Gbajabiamila, efforts are in place to make sure that those who suffered the misfortune of being forced to flee their homes return to productive livelihood.
Mr Gbajabiamila, however, donated food and sanitary items to the IDPs.
“We are here to extend our arms of fellowship to our brothers and sisters who, in flight from conflict and deprivation, have come to find a measure of peace in the protection of this camp.
“We have come bearing gifts which we hope will in some small way, help to improve the circumstances of life for all those who are resident in this camp.“More than that, we have come bearing assurances that you have not been forgotten and you will not be left behind.
“Allow us the honour of spending the day with you as brothers and sisters, and may God bless and keep us all through the challenges of the present times,” the speaker said.
