IDPsSpeaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara yesterday visited one of the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camps in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, where he donated food items and clothing materials.

Dogara, who was accompanied by some members of the Green Chamber, also assured the IDPs in Wassa camp of the lawmakers’ resolve to bring the insurgency to an end in the nearest future.

According to him, as leaders who enjoyed the votes of the people, “we cannot sleep over your plights in the camps”.

The Speaker said the visit was informed by his concern to their plight and to personally appraise the living conditions of the IDPs in Abuja.

Such visit would also be made to the camps outside the nation’s capital as soon possible as a palliative intervention, Dogara added.

Items donated by the Speaker for the four Abuja IDP camps were: 250 bags of rice, 550 bags of maize, 600 bags of millet, 200 cartons of noodles, 80 bags of sugar, 250 bags of beans, 100 bags of table salt, 100 jerry cans of vegetable oil, 700 units of Super Print wax and 700 units of brocade material.

Receiving the items on behalf of the other camps, chairman of the Wassa camp, Hamman Bukar, commended the lawmakers for the gesture.

He, however, appealed to the Speaker to champion the provision of basic amenities like potable water, schools and hospitals in the camps, the absence of which is making life difficult for the IDPs.
