Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) from Madagali, Gulak, Michika and Bazza local government areas of Adamawa State have rejected relief materials donated to them by the Adamawa State chairman of All Progressives Congress, Hon. Binta Garba Masi.
The IDPs said what was paramount to them was the return of peace so they could go back to their homes and continue with their major preoccupation which is farming.
Hon. Masi was accompanied by members of the state exco of the party to Ribadu Square, the venue of the distribution of the relief materials.
The displaced persons maintained that no amount of food or relief materials would solve their problem, unless something urgent and lasting was done to enable them go back to their ancestral homes.
“All we need is peace not assistance with relief materials”, the aggrieved IDP’s told the APC chairman.
Gulak and Madagali are in Madagali local government area, while Bazza and Michika are in Michika local government area.
Hon. Binta Garba Mai hails from Bazza.
