Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rep. Femi Gbajabiamila has come out to reveal that the government is ready to tackle several challenges facing Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Nigeria.
He revealed this during his outreach programme at the Durumi IDP Camp, Abuja recently.
According to him, every displaced person in the country should not despair because they are not forgotten and would never be left behind.
He added that he would make sure all citizens of Nigeria who have suffered the misfortune of being forced to choose between dying at home and running away to survive return to productive livelihood.
His words, “We are here to extend the 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. But more than that, we have come bearing assurances that you have not been forgotten and you will not be left behind.
“I will ensure a return to productive livelihood for all citizens of Nigeria who have suffered the misfortune of being forced to choose between dying at home and running away to survive.
“I assure you of his determination to succeed in that endeavour.
“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”.
