Nigeria is set to resettle, rehabilitate and reintegrate people displaced by Boko Haram attacks back into their homes and communities, to pave way for a new lease of life for them, Odutayo Oluseyi, the spokesperson appointed for the Presidential Initiative on the North East (PINE), said on Monday.

The reintegration process will today be flagged off by President Goodluck Jonathan by inaugurating a special committee to see to that. The committee was also partly set up to fast-track government’s plan for the affected communities.

The special committee, in collaboration with other relevant government agencies, will also assess the status and conditions of liberated communities to determine which ones are ready for occupation, assess and determine the immediate needs of the returnees and to assess, recommend and implement modalities for the return of the refugees to their communities, the spokesman told Chinese news portal, Xinhua.

Nigerian troops have routed Boko Haram fighters from different towns and communities in northeast Borno, Adamawa and Yobe states in the last few weeks, thereby creating the opportunity for displaced persons to resettle in their comfort zones. There are now just a few local governments in Borno State left under the control of the terrorist group.
