Succour For IDPs Remains One Of Our Top Priorities – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari said Monday in Abuja that the resettlement and comfort of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) will remain a top priority of the Federal Government.

Speaking after a briefing by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development, Dr. Ezekiel Oyebola Oyemomi, President Buhari said that the well-being of about 1.5 million people displaced by the insurgency in the North-East must always be uppermost in the minds of those in government.

The President, therefore, directed the ministry to always be mindful of the pathetic circumstances of the IDPs, and factor them into proposals for next year’s Budget.

“You must help to improve their situation,” the President told the Permanent Secretary and his team of officials.

Oyemomi , according to a statement signed by the President's Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, briefed President Buhari on the activities of his Ministry as well as the Ministry’s successes and the challenges.

He asked for improved funding for the Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development in the 2016 budget.
