BETTA EDU FLAGS OFF DISTRIBUTION OF NON-FOOD ITEMS TO IDP’S AT SHWARI CAMP 5, IN BORNO                                                                         09-09-23                                                                                        By Sadiq Aminu                                            The Minister for Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Dr. Betta Edu, has flagged off the distribution of non-food items to the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) covering over 900 households at Shwari Camp 5 in Maiduguri, the Borno state capital.

The Minister assured the 480,000 unregistered IDPs that the Federal government was not unmindful of their plight and humanitarian needs, saying President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s Renewed Hope Agenda, geared toward eradicating poverty will cover them directly working with the state Government.

In a statement by her Special Adviser Media and Publicity Rasheed Zubair, the Minister promised them that the social register, conditional cash transfer, and other social intervention programs of the federal government would be extended to them.

Dr. Edu expressed optimism that the relief items will go a long way in cushioning their harsh living condition and Government will provide more durable solutions for them to cater for their families.

“Vocations and skill training, micro small and medium size enterprises amongst other interventions are important for those who are here and ready, but for those who can trace where they came from, we will reunite them with their families and provide them with economic start-up capital to remove them and their families out of poverty”, the Minister said.The relief items distributed include hundreds of mattresses, pillows, blankets, footwear, wrappers, and treated Insecticide mosquito nets.
