President Muhammadu Buhari has assured internally-displaced persons (IDPs) of his administration;s resolve to leave no stone unturned in restoring their devastated communities for their immediate and safe return.
The president stated this yesterday while congratulating the 2,000 IDPs at the Kuchingoro Camp in the Federal Capital Territory who are getting set to return to their communities in the Northeast. Represented by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, President Buhari assured all Nigerians that his administration will not forget citizens in their time of distress and will continue to work for the betterment and security of the people.
With Shehu receiving the IDPs at the precincts of the Aso Rock Villa on his behalf, Buhari also used the opportunity to thank members of the international community and Nigerians including Aliko Dangote, General T.Y Danjuma and other philanthropists, for their sustained efforts towards the reconstruction and rehabilitation of destroyed communities in the North-East.
Responding on behalf of the IDPs who are mainly women and children, Mrs. Maryam Nuhu thanked the Buhari-led administration for the defeat of Boko Haram terrorists and the ongoing reconstruction of their communities.
“Our towns and villages have been cleared of these terrorists. We can now confidently return home and pick up our lives from the points where we will meet them.
Mr President, thanks for making this possible for us to be returning home. Our sad story took a turn for the better because of the calibre of military leaders you appointed,” she said.
