The Speaker of the House Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara has urged the Presidency to make adequate budgetary provision in 2016 for the resettlement of internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the country.

The Speaker made the call in his remarks at the sensitization workshop on the role of the parliament in addressing the challenges of IDPs in Nigeria, organized by the House Committee on Internally Displaced Persons, (IDPs) Refugees, and Initiatives on the Northern East Geopolitical Zone.

It was also done in collaboration with United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

Dogara also urged President Muhammadu Buhari to forward a bill to the National Assembly for the ratification of the Kampala Treaty on Internally Displaced Persons for ratification.

Dogara said the House is currently processing a Bill to consolidate the anti-terrorism legislation into one document for ease of use and reference, and that the National Assembly has always supported all budgetary requests from the Executive to fight terrorism.
